What is the key to riding a bike? Balance! Vittorio Brumotti, from Italy, has plenty of it.
Check out this amazing video with your STRIDER Rider…it’s never too early to start inspiring them with the amazing things that can be done on two wheels.
Now get outside and ride!

The Japanese always have a strong showing at the World Championship Trick Competion. Check out this great video from Team Trick Riders…has your STRIDER rider perfected any of these moves?
Have a great Saturday!
The STRIDER Super 16 was developed for older kids still having balance issues, and playing around at the skate park. Chris, our South African distributor, is a big BMX rider and thought it would be fun to see what a local racer could do with it. The results are pretty cool!
If you thought STRIDER Bikes were only for toddlers, think again.
Now get outside and have a great Saturday!
People are constantly surprised to learn that the world-wide headquarters for Strider Sports International, Inc., is located in Rapid City, SD. Even people in Rapid City are surprised!! So where is Rapid City? It’s nestled in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota, in the southwestern corner of the state, 30 minutes from Mount Rushmore.
We’re putting Rapid City on the map as we’re hosting our 2014 STRIDER World Championship Race here in September 2014 (Watch for more details. If you’ve never visited, what are you waiting for?? This place is awesome—no smog, no crazy traffic, low crime—just clean air, beautiful mountains, great biking trails,and friendly people! We have a strong presence in this region of the U.S. with lots of children riding STRIDERS! But our presence extends far beyond the central US! In fact, STRIDER™ Bikes are available all over the US, as well as in 70+ countries, through our awesome global network of STRIDER distributors, and countless sub-distributors and dealers!
In the next weeks and months, we’ll begin introducing each of our distributors to you (pictured above with Strider staff at the 2013 STRIDER World Championship in Sarasota, FL), and sharing more of our global Strider culture. Stay Tuned.
Ashton was the 2012 UK STRIDER Champion and joined us for the STRIDER World Championship in Sarasota, FL. He even patented his now signature move, “The Fire Hydrant” (pictured below), during the STRIDER trick competition!
The video below is a great example of STRIDER progression and balance. Did I mention that the video is shot in Sherwood Forest? If you didn’t think it could get any cooler than that, watch Ashton’s balance skills. This is one of the main reasons that we tell parents to hold on to their STRIDER bikes even after their children have started pedalling.
He goes through the enitre rhythm section standing on the Launchpad footrests. He also is able to balance and keep going through some slow going on top of the tabletop jumps.
Have a great Saturday…Now get outside and enjoy the day!
