Bike Build Donation
Best Corporate Events’ facilitators have been successfully delivering Bike Build Donation programs for the past 20 years, and after going high-tech in 2012, we continue to pioneer the future of this charity event with the use of our proprietary apps and Apple iPads®. This worthwhile team building exercise incorporates engaging audio/video clues as well as fun challenges and activities, enabling teams to earn the parts and tools necessary to assemble bikes for children in need. This captivating program will be memorialized by your participants via the photos and videos that they will take throughout the event on the team’s iPad.
After a fun icebreaker to get everyone “in gear,” your teams will receive their iPads and instructions. As teams continually gain points through the iPad challenges, they will be rewarded with trips to our bike store to obtain the parts they need for the build. Once the bikes are built, they are inspected by our mechanics before being displayed with the participants for a group picture. Based on timeframe and available space, the program may also include personal notes of encouragement, a bike parade, decorative bike license plates, or a bike race.
At the conclusion of the program, a local charity representative will address your group and thank you for your donation. Whenever possible, your group may present these beautiful bicycles directly to deserving children. This event is sure to strengthen your team and touch their hearts.
Bike Build Donation is one of our most popular give-back programs, and every bicycle your group builds comes with a cool helmet and a lock for safety.
Organization, delegation, communication, and some mechanical skills will be put to use to complete this fun and engaging activity.

"Your Bike Build Donation was by far one of our best events. My whole team had wonderful things to say about your lead facilitator, your staff and the event itself. Our VP sent a note to the SVP praising the event and recommending that all of his teams do this event. What a great way to give back to the community. Having the kids come at the end was a very special touch that will be remembered forever. Thank you so much for making this event a huge success!"Angelica - Apple
"Thank you so very much for yesterday’s Bike Build Donation event. We had such a great time together… your lead facilitator was the best ever! One of our colleagues who joined us wants to have the same event at his U.K. facility. It has been a pleasure working with everyone at Best Corporate Events to make this wonderful event happen! We look forward to having another event sometime next year."Naoko - Sumitomo Chemical America, Inc.
"I’ve heard only positive feedback from the Bike Build Donation with iPads event you delivered here. Your lead facilitator did an awesome job of taking control of the room (all the burly men) and setting a good tone from the beginning. I liked, and I guarantee the participants liked, the way you got them into the exercise quickly. I heard we’ve done Bike Builds in the past where we hit the hour mark and did not yet have bike parts and that they did not do the bike races at the end of the program. I’m telling everyone that we just had the best Bike Build ever. How’s that for a review/assessment?"David - FedEx Ground
"I wanted to take a second and say thank you for the great job you guys did at the Bike Build on Tuesday. The group had an amazing time and the added bonus of having the kids there to receive them was truly special. Thank you so much for time, effort and leadership. I look forward to working with you again."Heather - Cream of the Crop Events
"We did a corporate Bike Build Donation with iPads in January for one of our Fortune 500 clients. They loved it, and our client told us it was the best teambuilding event they've done in years. With the iPad® aspect of the event, his entire team participated whole-heartedly, with a level of engagement higher than past events. In fact, as a result of this event, the client has referred us to other divisions within the company for team building events."Ann - Arrangements Unlimited Inc.
"Thank you so much for your enthusiastic, energetic, and perfect facilitation of our Bike Build with iPads. The employees of MPI wanted to do a community service event and this was perfect. We had great reviews and the team loved it. I look forward to working with you again. "Diane - SPHR
"I just wanted to send out a HUGE thank you for a wonderful event last week. The response from the team has been fantastic! I think we will most likely do another event like this for them next year. After experiencing the group, if you can let me know what you think would be good options for them I would appreciate it. I am sure it will be hard to beat the bike build. Thanks again for everything. Our hopes are to pitch your services to many more of our clients."Kim - Corporate Optics
"We felt so privileged and honored to take part in your new Bike Build program. We couldn’t stop talking about the integration of the iPads - they were a great added value! I also loved that I just booked the program and your team handled the rest. Your facilitator was a great leader- funny, personable and very excited which got everyone super motivated. My team said they would never forget it!"Jamie - Align Technology
"Thank you for sending the photos of our Bike Build with iPads event. We have enjoyed looking at them again. Also, I would like to thank you and your team at Best Corporate Events for a wonderful event. Everyone was easy to work with, and incredibly helpful. I would suggest your services to others in the future."Katie - Idom Group
"I want to thank you and Best Corporate Events for a wonderful event. Our group had an excellent time collaborating together to build the bicycles for our charity."Brenda - Wellcare
"The kids are beyond ecstatic with their new bikes! They all have come to me wanting me to thank you again for the wonderful celebration and community impact. This is the first bike for many of them and some may not even of had this opportunity if it weren’t for you and your organization. They all made it to school on time the next day (although they were hoping to put in more time on the pedals) and we made it to the hotel to pick up the remaining bikes. Thank you so much for the pictures and making a lifelong impact on our young members’ lives. YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!!"Shawn - BGCEV
"I wanted to send you an email and tell you what a great time we had yesterday at our Bike Build Donation event in Orlando. The comments from our staff were all very positive. Your lead facilitator was great; he was able to control our very competitive group, while making it fun for everybody. Again, thank you for everything and please extend our thanks to your entire staff."Linda - McDonald's Corporation
"The Bike Build was wonderful from start to finish and the participants LOVED it. Your facilitator made it so fun and interactive and of course the grand finale of having the kids arrive to accept the bikes was powerful. Tears and goose bumps! Thanks again and we look forward to partnering with you again!"Susan - Docherty Incentives & Meetings
"Your team is amazing!!! Thanks for the prompt follow-up with the photos/video link from the Best Corporate event last night. Our hearts are overflowing with gratitude to you and the dynamic team leaders for allowing the AVAD team to join hands with Best Corporate events on this momentous Team Building experience. Our heartstrings will forever be connected to this Team Building / Charity experience. On behalf of “TEAM AVAD”…Thank you!!!"Donna - Avad LLC
"Everyone really enjoyed the afternoon and just loved building the bikes for the kids. What a great concept! I just wanted to thank you for doing such an amazing job delivering the event for us. We can be a tough crowd to please, but our group rated it as the best team building experience they have done so far, and we have had a few! All the best."Petra - Julius Zorn, Inc.
"Your company is named as it should be, “BEST Corporate Events”. Our 2015 Marketing Team has expressed their delight in participating in the Bike Build event. It was filled with laughter, team cooperation, thinking out of the box attitudes, and creativeness that contributed its overall success. It helps also when the facilitator is a “people” person and knows how to interact and make it an even more fun filled event! The Dow 2015 Marketing Team enjoyed every aspect of this program!"Delores - The Dow Chemical Company
"Thank you for all of your hard work and tireless effort to insure that our Mega bike build was highly successful! Your lead facilitator did an amazing job! Feedback I heard was “this was the best Mega break-out session over the past nine years!” Everyone really liked the pace and the multiple tasks and the materials helped everyone to focus. It was fun, engaging and challenging and all of the planning paid off. Of course the children receiving the bikes at the end was incredibly special – I appreciate your efforts in working with United Way to make this happen. Thank you again for a truly memorable event!"Caroll - Phillips Healthcare
"I wanted to pass along the wonderful feedback that I received from our Bike Build Donation event. Everyone loved it and had a wonderful time and they are getting a kick out of the pictures they took on the iPads! Many people have asked for the company information so they have it available when they want to do something like this in the future. Thanks for being so great to work with and putting on an awesome event!"Lindsay - Capital One Financial Corporation
"Omg!! I don't think I can fully explain how much this program brought our company together, built long lasting employee ties to each other and the company, and paved the way for strengthening and securing the values at Seco. Employees laughed, competed, build friendships, got to know executives and laughed some more. Your lead was an amazing facilitator, keeping 330 antsy salespeople engaged, entertained, and motivated. We have participated in many different fun programs in the past, but the response from this one was far beyond expectations. Employees had a lovely time but were bought to tears when the children from the charity organization arrived unannounced. One exec scheduled to retire next month pulled me aside and thanked the team for helping him leave on such a high note."Jennifer - Seco Tools
"Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!! Just wanted to say thank you for a great event yesterday. The team has a lot of fun and just seeing the look on the kids’ faces made it all worthwhile. Thank you again for a great event!!!!"Marietta - LinkedIn
"We all had such a wonderful time at our Bike Build Donation event – your lead facilitator was great and the entire teambuilding activity ran like a clock! I am receiving more and more emails telling me how much they loved the activity! Such an uplifting event and it left everyone in a great mood. Thanks very much!"Ashley - HealthFitness
"I wanted to let you know that we had an awesome event! Your lead facilitator and his team were the best! And it is fantastic that the children were able to come and the team could see where the bikes were going. The feedback I received was that this was the best event by far that we’ve ever done. A great big thank you to everyone for a very successful event! Best regards."Julie - Visa, Inc.
"Our Bike Build Donation went better than we could have expected. I received great feedback from our team. Many said it was the best team build they ever participated in at our company or any other company they worked at. Your lead facilitator did a great job - he was awesome. He has a great personality and it definitely made the event a great experience. Thanks!"Jim - Do It Best Corporation
"Thank you so much for our event. I was expecting it would go well but the outcome was outstanding. This is a tough group but you had them in the palm of your hand from the warm up games, the build off, to the children coming in to collect their bikes. We couldn’t have asked for a better event coordinator. Our group has not stopped talking about it. This charitable event has meant so much to everyone. I will be telling everyone about Best Corporate Events and will definitely be using your company again in the future."Judy - Hilton Hotels
"The event was absolutely fabulous! Your lead facilitator did an amazing job. The icebreakers were just perfect! So many of the attendees mentioned how great the whole teambuilding event was – some even mentioned it multiple times!! This was truly the first time most of these people had ever met and having them work in these groups and figure out each other’s’ strengths and weaknesses was such a great exercise in itself. My team learned that no one knew how to put a bike together! So it really was a team effort for us! Lol. Thanks so much for offering such a great experience for companies like mine."Holly - Volvo Construction Equipment
"It was fantastic! Everyone had nothing but positive comments. Both in the games and the giveaway to the kids. Bradley and his assistant were so much fun and engaging. I will definitely tell my associates about you guys. Thanks again for a perfect team building event."Cindy - Celgene Corporate
"I can't say enough about the Bike Build program! It was exactly the type of team building activity that we were looking for, and it was executed beautifully. Your lead facilitator and his team were great during the event -- they were able to command the attention of our group and have them work very efficiently so that they were done right on schedule. I am also very pleased that your group was able to arrange for members of the Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena to accept the bike donation - what a great ending to a great day! I also really appreciate that we received the footage and photos from the iPads so quickly! My team and I are having a great time browsing through all of the material and will be using it to provide a fun feedback from our attendees about their experience with the Bike Build Donation. My director was thrilled with how the event went, so I am thrilled too! Many thanks to you and your team for making the whole experience, from contract signing to bike building, easy and enjoyable!"Melissa - Kaiser Permanente
"Thank you So Much for all you did to make the evening and charity bike build event such a huge success. Your facilitators were amazing and made everything run so smoothly. It was wonderful to see the guests working so well together and having such a good time making the bikes. The finale was perfect. To witness the mixed and sobering emotions at the surprise presentation to those beautiful children was something I will long remember. It really pulls at your heartstrings! Thank you all so much for a great job and the amazing experience."Christine - Connections Unlimited
"The Bike Build Donation experience with iPads has been deemed by many of the participants as one of the best charitable activities we’ve engaged in over 6 years & 12+ events. There was a perfect combination of required teamwork, creativity & of course- the experience of seeing the kids who became recipients of the bikes themselves. Since Cisco Systems is a high tech company, the iPad challenges were right up our alley. Finally- our event lead was incredible. Thanks again!"Frank - Cisco
"I have been meaning to reach out and thank you all for doing a terrific job with our Bike Build Donation program! Our group was very pleased and we were informed by most of our employees that this was the highlight of the conference and probably the best conference event to date. So huge thanks Best Corporate Events!!"Amanda - Linium

"I will be honest that I did not know what to expect prior to the event and had only heard great reviews. Our group had a wonderful time and it was truly rewarding knowing that the bikes were going to a local community. Fun was had by all and your facilitators were extremely helpful and made the process for me very easy. Thanks again for all your help."Joe - Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.
