When they find out the bikes will be donated to a local kids’ charity, this fun and challenging exercise takes on a deeper meaning and gives everyone a warm, fuzzy glow.
Teams will complete a series of tasks and challenges in order to earn the pieces of their bike. Once all pieces have been collected, building the bike can begin. When the bike is fully built, each team must bring their bike to a qualified mechanic who will give the bike a “once over” and report on any defects to the judges. The first team to have their bike built and approved will be crowned champions for the day.
Once the bikes are complete, each team finds out that their bike is to be donated to a local kids’ charity. Medals are presented and the kids collect their bikes.
