Bike-A-Thon™ Bicycle team building workshops have certainly made it into the Hall of Fame for corporate events…the popularity of this particular charity workshop is unparalleled…and with good reason!
After all, when executives and staff alike can come together with passion and dedication like they do when building bikes for deserving kids, you know something powerful is happening!
There’s a Reason They Call it a Classic!
What better way to serve the community plus bring your team together than to build bicycles for Indianapolis kids who need them?
Of course it’s so much more than building bikes…that’s why it takes two hours to build them during this ever-popular workshop. If you ask anyone who’s even a little mechanically inclined, they’d raise their eyebrows. The average time it takes to assemble a bicycle is about 15 minutes and if you ask our facilitators, they’d probably say five minutes, they’ve done it so often!
Why it Takes Two Hours to Build a Bicycle
The reason it takes so long is because teams aren’t simply building toys for kids. They’re participating in a series of carefully developed experiential learning activities designed to improve their teamwork skills. There’s actually a lot going on under the surface of each activity…our professional workshop developers make sure of that!
Teams must solve problems to earn parts for their bicycles. Solutions to these problems entail all the basic components of a high-functioning, productive team that communicates, collaborates and works together efficiently and productively.
No wonder it takes two hours to complete a bike!
You’re Building Much More Than Bicycles
Our professional facilitators will lead your group through a series of progressive activities, building on skills that relate directly back to the work place.
One thing they’ll focus on is exploring personality styles. Workshop participants learn to recognize and appreciate the wonderful mix of styles in any group, and how they all contribute in their own way towards the success of the group.
You’re building team skills and team strength.
You’ll also be building bridges to the Indianapolis community. Don’t forget, this is a charity workshop. That means groups are working for a common cause and in this case it’s donating bicycles to children who need them but whose families can’t afford them. It’s a cause everyone rallies behind. Just imagine the final event activities, when kids rush in to claim their brand new bicycles!
