One For One Give Back With Bikes

CHARITY BIKE BUILD community service team-building group challenge | Out of the Ordinary Group Adventures

In 2017, we introduced our new "One for One" Give Back Program! The concept is simple: For every job we land, we'll donate a bike to a worthy cause. Last year, the recipient of our program was "Toys for Joy," an annual event organized by the Rock Church every December.  In 2018 & 2019, we are donating bikes plus basketballs and soccer balls to deserving kids.   If you have a charity that's close to your heart, let us know!

Teambuilding Programs that feature "Give Back" Options:

Over the years, we've partnered with numerous charities including:

 

Roll up to the Magical Mystery Tour

The team that plays together, stays together

Known for its gorgeous coastline, amazing views, and near perfect weather, San Diego is the place to be! Imagine if you could combine a unique team building EXPERIENCE that features San Diego’s hidden spots, in an unforgettable way.  We also encourage you to include a stop featuring a meaningful Give Back Activity. See the copy below for ideas.

This 3 to 3.5-hour adventure is a customized outing, designed around your overall vision. The adventure begins once your group hops aboard our luxury bus.

Along the way, there will be various stops - designed to appeal to the creative “inner kid” inside you. Depending on which areas we visit, some of the stops/topics include:

 

*A lovely Suspension Bridge that runs 377 feet from one side of a Canyon to the other.

*Secret, little known areas along the coastline

*Amazing, Historical homes

*Colorful Canyons

*Lovely Roof top views

*Fun shops, unique Art Galleries

 

WE LOVE A LITTLE MYSTERY!

And to make things even more enticing? At some of the stops, we can incorporate an exciting element. Think of it as a “Moving Adventure” as we’ve taken the traditional Sight Seeing tour, and have re-packaged it, as a more playful and intriguing adventure!

 

Some of the elements your group could experience include:

*An Illusionist performing an interactive, awe-inspiring show

*Escape to Hawaii with a fun Hula & Tahitian Dance performance

*Learn the unique art of Drumming

*Building bikes or trikes; Visiting veterans or seniors.

  

LOOKING TO GIVE BACK?  

If philanthropy is important to you, we will  incorporate a “Give Back” option at our last stop.  Perhaps your group can build trikes, kids’ bikes or fill backpacks.  Note: This is a customized, specialty feature with additional costs.  Depending on what your group selects, it may also require more time.  

 

 

CHARITY BIKE BUILD TEAM CHALLENGE

Wow – fun and competition, along with a real service to the community! Excitement, laughter, camaraderie, and good will be fostered in this fast-paced team event. Your group will be divided into teams of 10 or less. Their task will be to assemble a bicycle or other toy, using a packaged kit, tools and some creative extras. The group must decide on a plan to achieve their goal in time, to utilize everyone’s skills and to market their finished product to the judges.

During the assembly process, there will also be a table available with supplies to “enhance” the finished product and to create marketing posters.

At the conclusion of this event, the bikes will be donated to a local charity for children.

 

Biking with Veterans

Your team takes a fun, relaxed spin on beach cruisers to secret spots with veterans or enlisted military. We can include a stop for ice cream or appetizers. There are 7 different areas we offer biking adventures. Coronado, La Jolla and the Balboa Park areas are the most popular.  See more info at our BIKE TOURS page.

 

Charity Backpack Team Challenge

Instead of building and donating bikes, teams are putting together backpacks.  The formula is the same, where teams compete for their choice of backpacks and other school items to be inserted in the backpack.  Teams will also be judged on Marketing Commercial and colorful poster. Think Shark Tank!

 

Red Wagon Building

In this fun, high energy activity, teams build and decorate Wagons for kids in need. Minute to Win It Challenges are incorporated into this program, to win toys for their team to place inside the wagon.

 

OTHER GIVE BACK PROGRAM OPTIONS:

Our popular Urban Challenge Scavenger Hunts and Minute to Win It Team Challenge can also be customized with teams playing for a cause OR inviting members from the charity to be involved with team building games.

"We feel blessed to do what we do in such a beautiful city. We never take it for granted. For us, helping others is essential. We want to be known as a company that gives back to San Diego and inspires others to do the same."
-Darlynne Reyes Menkin

 

"When we launched this company, we knew we wanted to use it as a vehicle to help others. Giving back is one of the greatest ways you can contribute to society.  Whether it's donating clothing or spending time with underprivileged children, giving and serving others is beneficial and meaningful to our city."
-Marc Menkin  

 

So don't get tired of doing what is good. Don't get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time.  (Galatians 6:9)
