Bike Park Ireland is an ideal location for a day out with your colleagues and team mates, not just for some thrilling adventure, but also for team bonding and to build on relationships. We can cater for groups up to 25 that need to hire our bikes and more if you have your own bikes. We provide half and full day packs and we can include lunch too in our Mucky Boot Cafe.
Corporate Team Building:
This has proved very popular at Bike Park Ireland because we make the activity meaningful in respect of what your business group is about, i.e. leadership development – supporting and challenging each other to better manage your businesses and lives.
We draw analogies from the activities you are doing and what you might experience on a day to day basis. Mountain Biking has many similarities to good work ethic as there are many challenges that we must all face and personal barriers we must overcome to progress in work and life itself.
We can tailor an activity especially for your company, however, the most popular activity is as follow:
On arrival (mid morning) we have a meet and greet coffee and we explain to the group all the different types of trails and what the plan is for the day, this takes about 20 minutes.
Then when everyone is on bikes we spent 45 minutes of coaching at the skills area on how to ride a mountain bike properly…… yes properly!!
We spend 30 minutes in the Bike Shed going through basic bike maintenance and we split the group into teams and get them to change punctures etc against the clock!! Sometimes we do this activity later in the day depending on the group size and weather.
Next, we bring the group and their bike to the top of the trails in our Army Truck. While in the truck we will read out or give out Leadership questions to prime a conversation amongst themselves before they cycle down the trails.
Throughout the day we will be pausing the group as they exit their chosen trails and ask them about their experience so far and to give analogues between the activity and the work place and life. This is when it becomes every interesting, as it is now that we start to really see who has been listening, who has overcome certain barriers, who is taking control of the challenges and who is showing good team player skills.
We finish the activity at approx 3pm, and when everyone is showered and changed we concluded with a conversation over a cup of coffee as to what people can learn about themselves and their business from the mountain biking experience they just had.
We stop for lunch at 1pm in our Mucky Boot Café for 45 minutes.
Don’t just take our word for it!
“The Kenny’s completely understand the ups and downs of a business person. Indeed they obviously are good business people with such a successful entrepreneurial venture as Bike Park Ireland.
Graham manages to relate his business experience to the ups and downs of mountain biking and creates a meaningful experience that will give you lots to think and talk about, helping you to improve yourself and your business.”
Barry Walsh, Power of Seven, Co. Galway, Ireland
“I took my Security Team there for a day out and some confidence training. It proved to be a cracking idea as the facilities were excellent and the mountain bikes top rate. The army lift truck to the summit where all the trails begin was excellent and very efficient. The trails are well designed and there is enough challenge there for all levels. The BBQ at lunch time is a great idea as this adds to the great atmosphere of the place. The staff are very competent and very friendly. I would highly recommend a visit to Bike Park Ireland.”
Ray O’Brien, Co.Limerick.
