Bikes for Tykes..the need to know
There is a reason company’s come back to complete the Bikes for Tykes program again and again. As the original charity bike building program, Bikes for Tykes has had a lasting impact on teams around Australia.
Through a series of fun (and slightly competitive) activities, teams will come together with the overall goal of earning enough parts to build the perfect bike. The best part? Well that has to be the smile on a child’s face as they take a look at their brand-new bike for the first time. The impact that this program has on the local community and on the participating teams cannot be matched.

im interested....so how does it work?
We know you are going to love the Bikes for Tykes program as much as we do! But let’s take a closer look at what you can expect come event day.
We will work with you to deliver a series of fun and challenging activities for your team, that align with your event objectives. Teams will need to bring their ‘A’ game as they work to triumphantly complete as many activities as possible if they want to earn maximum points and pieces to successfully build their bikes.
Once the teams have earned all the pieces of their bikes, it’s time to put those building caps on. Teams will race against the clock as they aim to build the best quality bike in the quickest time. But watch out, if your bike isn’t up to the bike mechanic’s standards… you may be left in the dust of the other teams.
Upon submission to the bicycle mechanic, each team will be given a score based on quality and accuracy of the build by each team. Bike building will be judged on everything from tightness of screws, tension of brakes, through to overall presentation of the bike. You will be on the edge of your seat as the last scores roll in and the winners are announced!
But just when you think that the day couldn’t get any better, the doors will open to reveal the real stars of the day. Representatives from a children’s charity will enter with the lucky recipients of the children’s bikes. As you wipe away the tears the representative from your chosen charity will say a few words of thanks and provide some insight to the children you have helped for the day, leaving everyone with plenty of warm and fuzzy feelings.
The Mercedes-Benz Vans team can’t thank Corporate Challenge enough for the great support in running our recent ‘Bikes for Tykes’ team building event. Our team were so touched by the opportunity to build bikes for families and make their Christmas a little brighter. It was a wonderful experience for all.
We had a fun day and Grant did an excellent job injecting some fun and energy into our conference participants. He was very well organised, timely and pleasant to deal with and confident leading such a large group of 40. Lots of great feedback was received by the team. We particularly liked how representatives from Heart Kids were able to attend and speak at the end of the session.
Everyone had a fantastic time and I was really impressed with how engaged the activities got everyone for the whole afternoon. We have a large number of new team members, so it was great to see everyone all working together, having fun, and the afternoon really flew past. First rate communications in advance of the day, and first rate facilitation on the day – thanks team!
Thank you, Dwain, Monique and Anita for facilitating our team building event at our annual region conference. It was a very well run event, considering all the logistics behind the scenes, and we also greatly appreciated the professional and timely communication every step of the way. The feedback from the participants has been amazing with many commenting on how rewarding the afternoon was, and it was indeed the perfect way to end the day.
