About Tikes On Bikes
This powerful and life changing experience is the perfect combination of teamwork and corporate social responsibility (CSR).
Teams of delegates construct a brand new bicycle assuming they will ultimately be involved in a bike race. Just as teams are about to race, the surprise is unveiled and children from an underprivileged charity group enter the room to receive their new bike! The atmosphere changes as delegates come to realise that it is all about the “bigger picture”.
The Tikes On Bikes team building event will see your delegates divided into teams of 6 people per team.
Teams will compete in a series of lead-in team tasks with the belief that the final challenge will be a bike race and the whole event is a competition. Then the leader of the team will reveal that in fact the bikes have been built and deserving kids are here to receive the bikes in person.
Each team will build and donate a bike and helmet to a child from an underprivileged charity group. We will work with you to make these arrangements.
The children will be in attendance on the day to receive their bikes from your delegates in person. They will also present a flag with your company’s logo signed by all the children.
There is no winning team in the Tikes On Bikes activity. Instead, teams are led to believe they are engaged in a friendly competition before the true meaning of the session is revealed; the bigger picture of giving back to those less fortunate.
Professional bike mechanics will be onsite to ensure safety.
We require a large, cleared indoor space for this activity.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Pinnacle Team Events twice now in the past 8 months. I have found Will, Mitch, Ruth and the PTE team, so incredibly professional, creative, and talented in everything they do. They hit the mark 110 %, facilitate events with style and wow factor, and go the extra mile to achieve success for their clients. Will in particular worked tirelessly to get the exact result we needed for our Business with Purpose customer event, that at times seemed unachievable… With his never give up attitude, we did it, and made a difference to local children in need. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you all, and I look forward to next time!!”
“Just wanted to thank you and your team for what can only be described as an A1 event! Beautifully executed, the team had so much fun doing it – and actually felt like it had been worthwhile on a deeper level, which is incredibly humbling and not something you generally get from these types of activities! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone who asked!”
“Always hard to choose the ‘right’ team building activity. Well this one nailed it! They all thought they were building the bikes to race each other on, only to find, as you said, the much bigger picture when those kids walked in. It was a truly magical moment!”
