Strider Adventure Zones Help Celebrate the 96th Running of the Indianapolis 500!

Strider Adventure Zones Give Even the Smallest Fans the Chance to Take the Checkered Flag

Indy500

Rapid City, South Dakota (May 22, 2012) – Strider Sports International, the world’s premier manufacturer and marketer of balance bikes, and developer of the patented STRIDER™ No-Pedal Balance Bike, will host three STRIDER Adventure Zones as part of a week-long celebration of the 96th Running of the Indianapolis 500 mile race. Admission to the STRIDER® Adventure Zone is free with paid admission to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Held in the East Museum lot at the world famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway, these free events allow children aged 18-months to four years open riding time, time to socialize with peers, play and practice tricks, and generally have fun while riding the STRIDER™ No-Pedal Balance Bike. Safe, family-friendly environments, Strider Adventure Zones are custom-built, cordoned off courses featuring a variety of terrain and obstacles that encourage children to explore the world on two wheels while developing balance, control, motor skills and confidence in even the youngest riders.

“At Strider Sports we are committed to supporting a fun, healthy, safe and fit lifestyle through bicycling,” says Ryan McFarland, founder and CEO of Strider Sports. “There is nothing quite like seeing a child overflow with confidence and self-esteem when they realize ‘I did it!’ In that moment you know they’ve found a love of cycling that will keep them fit and healthy for years to come.”

Strider Adventure Zones at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway will take place on the following schedule:

• Wednesday, May 23 as part of the “500 Festival community Day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway”

o 9am – 5pm

• Saturday, May 26 as part of the “Legends Day Celebration”

o 9am – 6pm

• Sunday, May 27 concurrent with the “96th Running of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race”
o 5:30am – Noon

The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation, Strider’s partner in these events, provides medical grants up to $5,000 to help families pay for children’s health care treatments, services or equipment not covered, or not fully covered, by a commercial health insurance plan. In 2011, UHCCF awarded more than 1,200 grants to families across the United States for treatments associated with medical conditions such as cancer, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, diabetes, hearing loss, autism, cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome, ADHD and cerebral palsy.  Eligible families can apply for a grant online at www.uhccf.org.

STRIDER Adventure Zone Is Fun For All!

STRIDER® Adventure Zone events are sweeping the nation and encouraging new two-wheeled riders at every stop.

A STRIDERAdventure Zone is a safe and friendly environment that encourages kids 18 months to 5 years old to explore mobility on two wheels and experience the challenge and thrill of riding on unique terrain and obstacles. The Adventure Zone course can be set up in as small as a 15’ x 30’ area, inside or outside, and on almost any terrain.

From the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix in Laguna Seca, CA, every Finish festival during both the Amgen Tour of California and the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, as well as Every USA BMX Nationals will all include an Adventure Zone! They are a great draw for young families and add something for the younger kids to do at almost any event. Toddlers love the mobility, freedom and fun the Adventure Zone offers, and parents love watching happy children and fun activities that keep them occupied.

If you have an event coming up in your area and want to look into a STRIDER Adventure Zone, give us a call (605)342-0266!
