‘Bikes 4 Little Tykes’ is a really unique team building event that combines an opportunity for your staff to hone skills like communication, creativity, leadership and teamwork, with a chance to give back to their local community.

This team building event starts by the formation of several different teams depending on the size of your group.  The objective for teams is to find and build a fully operational kids bike.  The problem for them though is that they have no parts…YET! What works well, is that a theme is built in – such as The Apprentice, or a Quality Control aspect, that way teams need to follow a briefing and also adhere to the rules in order to win.

The parts for all of the bikes must be earned through the completion of different challenges, which can be designed to meet any and all of your objectives for your team.  These challenges vary, from a classic race against the clock, or team problems, where teams vs teams are rewarded for their results – the more you win the more info you get. Once all pieces have been collected, the building of the bike can begin.

Once the bikes are completed, a bike mechanic will inspect them and report any defects to the judges.  The team to build their bike to 100% first will be the winner.

Now, here comes the charitable part.  During this whole time, your team is led to believe this is simply a team building exercise; they aren’t informed of the final destination of the bikes that they’re building.  Once all the teams have completed their bikes, though, the children will be brought in, and your teams will each get to give their newly built bikes to a needy child. Teams present their Quality Control inspected bicycles to children in need from a selected children’s charity. eg: Unicef, Make A Wish, Stuart House, Save The Children, Starlight Foundation, Red Kite, Smith Family, Salvation Army, Barnados, Camp Quality or Red Cross…
