TheSTRIDER Super 16was developed for older kids still having balance issues, and playing around at the skate park. Chris, ourSouth 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.
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 beautifulBlack 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 our2014 STRIDER World ChampionshipRace 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—justclean 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!

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!

It has been another Amazing year at Strider Sports International! The 2013 STRIDER ST-3 was full of cool new improvements on an already (in our opinion) cool little bike. The STRIDER calendar contest was a huge hit! Look for them on the walls of STRIDER dealers all over the country, you can also order one for yourself HERE. Another highlight was the 2012 STRIDER World Championships. With racers ranging from 18 months to 5 years old from as far away as Japan and Slovakia, the 2nd annual racing weekend at Sarasota BMX was a huge success!
With almost 100,000 new STRIDER riders in 2012, 2013 is already shaping up to be a great year!
Happy New Years!
