A new type of activity for your seminars and business events

Are you looking for new, original activities out in the fresh air, with zero carbon and accessible for all? Le Grand Huit is your ideal provider!

Are you organising a business conference? A motivational seminar as a reward for contributors, commercial partners? A professional conference with or without spouses? A company retreat? A review meeting? A special evening? A celebration or party?

A Penny Farthing bicycle, a Solowheel, novelty bikes or Stand Up Paddle - an amazing spectacle which will involve all your participants and which produces some stunning photos of your event.

We are well accustomed to preparing activities for all sorts of business groups and in different countries. Our guides are used to coaching adults in a range of activities , adapting to people of varying positions of responsibility. The event can even be delivered at your own premises.

The different options:

Novelty bicycles event
A dozen novelty bikes, never seen before, are available for your group. Our guide will be there to assist participants with safety in mind.

Bicycle tour of the town
We prepare an individual guided tour itinerary with you according to your time allocation and group rotation. There are always interesting places to explore close to your workplace and a good programme to devise just for you. Our guide enlivens the activity with some fun and easy cycling games. We can also arrange more classic rides starting at our bases in Lille, Paris or Gand.

We can also take charge of your rally promoting awareness of green modes of transport celebrating the company's collective savings made by participants coming other than alone by car. The results in saving CO2 and Euros are impressive when the figures for all personnel are combined. This is a simple, quick, tangible activity which values your team.

Workshops for large groups (other activities)
By rotating around a selection of activities we are able to cater for large groups; as well as the activities already mentioned we are also able to offer:
• an introduction to Solowheel
• collective Zen massage, led by our company group specialist, Fred
• Molkky, a growing new skittle trend from Finland
• Introduction to Slackline, or how to test your balance without risk
