Upgrade Your Next Team Building Event with The HandleBar
If you absolutely love cubicles and fluorescent lighting, this opportunity may not be for you. For everyone else, say HELLO! to the best thing ever to happen to office outings! The HandleBar Indy offers team building experiences that are inclusive to all of your employees or coworkers, gets the office outside, and promotes the true meaning of working together and teamwork.
One of the most popular events people book our bike bars for are office outings/team building events. BUT, you may be asking, “Why should I book a team building event on The HandleBar?” There are a ton of reasons, but we’ll narrow it down to the three most important.
1) Actual Team Building
It’s like renting a private VIP room that moves past skyscrapers and every iconic attraction downtown. Most importantly, though, it also achieves the actual purpose of the tour: Team building! Many of our drivers (and us!) have been in corporate America for years, and we’ve done our fair share of office outings where people only interact with their “office BFF” or the activity isn’t really conducive to team building (or fun). Picture this: we’re like a giant picnic table riding through the city, so our bike bar tours provide an EASY and “required” opportunity for everyone to interact with one another. Plus, you DO have to pedal together to move (but don’t worry, all our bikes have electric assist motors to keep it easy!). A perfect example of our pedal pub tours promoting team communication and engaging all members of the office happens most frequently when the bike bars are stopped at a red light. Pay attention when the light turns green, someone always gets called out for not pedaling quick enough!
2) Get Outside and EXPERIENCE Indy
There is no better way to take in the city than in the open air, on a HandleBar pedal bar, with friends and coworkers! The slow pace allows you to look around and see all the new developments happening downtown at your leisure while you play your own music and talk to each other. If you have questions during the tour, we love to talk about the city too, so just ask. Remember, our pedal bar tours typically consist of 20 minutes of cruising followed by 20 minutes of resting at a landmark or bar/restaurant, so there is tons of time to chat about what you saw during the pedaling or after, while we’re stopped. Our drivers are also instructed on the best places/angles to get group photos in the city, so you’ll always have something to remember the experience.
3) Tours are FREE when your boss pays!
Talk your boss into booking a HandleBar bike bar tour for a team outing and if you’re lucky, he or she will foot the bill! Even better, talk them into booking a tour a couple hours before the office typically lets out and you can sneak it in when you would normally have to work. If you need help getting the wheels moving, maybe try this: make a deal with the bigwigs. If a certain target or milestone is achieved the bike bar tour is the prize or bonus for you and your coworkers. Working hard is important, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find time to play hard too!
4) Spice up your staff meetings, get picked up at YOUR office! Contact us!
