Foxhills Club & Resort

As the 2015 official resort partner of the AVIVA Tour of Britain cycle race, Surrey-based Foxhills Club & Resort and new specialist partner, Just Pedal, have created an active teambuilding experience for groups of various sizes. The package includes a cycle route specifically designed for each corporate group, with professional on-ride support and guidance. Each experience can be tailored for groups, with options such as snacks, meals and energy products, post-ride massages at Foxhills’ health spa, an official photographer, branded cycling kit and overnight accommodation at the resort, including the bedrooms used by Sir Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome and Team GB road cyclists during the London 2012 Olympics.

Team Spirit’s Bike Build

For groups who are keen to give back to the community, Team Spirit can arrange a charity Bike Build for up to 150. Team members work together to build and decorate the bikes using an instruction manual, which are then donated to charities of their choice, such as children’s hospices. Available in any destination, the agency offers a free venue finding service to help corporate groups find a suitable space to host their teambuilding event.

Lee Valley VeloPark

Lee Valley VeloPark on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park offers the world's fastest indoor velodrome cycling experience, catering for up to 16 people at a time, or 144 over the course of a day. Cycling coaches will work with groups of four to train for group races, before the experience ends in a competitive 'flying lap' session. The park also offers bespoke road cycling, mountain biking and BMX packages for corporate groups of between eight and 20, depending on the track. Lunch and drinks can be provided at the venue and all safety equipment and training is included.
