If you’ve ever built a bicycle – perhaps in the wee hours of your child’s birthday morning – you know it can be a bit of a challenge.
That didn’t stop more than 50 Levi Strauss & Co. employees from signing up for the YBike volunteer project on the company’s annual Community Day today.
YBike is a San Francisco YMCA youth program, which introduces the responsibility and freedom that bicycles bring to urban kids who might otherwise not know.
This project was one of 168 in which LS&Co. employees took part today, at 71 locations around the world.
The bicycles were assembled over a few hours in the lobby of our company's San Francisco headquarters. And we attempted to capture the project of building about 35 bicycles in this time-lapse video of about 35 seconds. That's one bicycle per second!
