St. James High School Visits the New Wike Bike Trailer and Box Bike Factory

May 27, 2016

At Wike, we’re proud to be manufacturing bike trailers and box bikes right here in North America. And we love to share our expertise and passion for the walk and bike lifestyle with anyone interested.

When St. James high school approached us for a tour of the factory for their high school class we were more than happy to comply! The class first rode around Guelph to learn more about urban geography and the importance of urban transportation in all its forms. Their tour took them right to the front door of our new factory were we happily showed off our new digs. The students seemed quite keen to learn about bicycle trailer and box bike manufacturing and they got a good look at what it takes to make these products. From aluminum and steel fabrication to cutting and sewing fabrics, they got a unique view of manufacturing in Ontario. They even got a peek at the “secret” Wike lab where we dream up, design, and prototype our latest bike innovations like the folding box bike. And, of course, we were proud to show them our new folding box bike, the salamander. After all that, a few inquired about summer jobs at the factory!

Of course, a bike trailer factory tour and bike ride were hardly the only thing on the agenda. The students headed to downtown Guelph to take part in a mock council were they were given access to the actual Guelph Council Chambers. They elected a mayor and had an actual debate regarding a motion to build a pedestrian/cycling bridge underpass that would integrate with the existing cycling network. We’re looking forward to at least a few of these polite, informed, and caring young citizens moving into municipal politics in the future.

At Wike, we’re always proud to share our expertise with the next generation. If you’d like to integrate a bike trailer and box bike factory tour into your school curriculum, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
