Together with our client community, WBM Bike Building events not only allow a humorous glimpse into how IT professionals are as bike mechanics, they also provide a heart warming and emotional connection to the faces of children as they receive what is in many cases, the first bicycle they have ever owned.

* Note that all bikes first pass a safety inspection prior to being presented

In 2010, as part of our ongoing Connection IT summit series, the WBM team was joined by over 250 members of our IT community. Together, we built over 60 bicycles for the amazing children at two community schools. Working as a team, we assembled bicycle after bicycle, decorating all with WBM racing stickers, matching helmets, and locks. Once built, local bike shop Doug’s Spoke ‘N Sport safety-inspected each bike, and in an emotional moment, each child’s name was held up as they entered to find their exciting new gift and meet the people who helped make it happen.

In 2014, the WBM client community recreated this special moment when 400 people came together to once again build bikes for kids at our community schools. This was another inspirational moment we are grateful to have shared with our clients and the families in our community.
