Who are they becoming?

Becoming KIND One Small Stride at a Time

None of us ever imagined the start of the summer would look quite like this. Most kids have been out of school or daycare for weeks already. Pools are closed. Travel plans have halted. And the cancellation of fairs and festivals leaves a void that the smell of kettle corn, sunscreen, and hot grease once filled. This situation is less than ideal. But, the worst of times brings out the best in people! Our little Strider riders are no exception.

We know that learning to ride isn’t JUST about the end goal of pedaling, but about everything children gain in the process. From the moment your baby sits on a Strider seat, they are gaining strength and confidence. They experience failure and success. They are becoming determined. They get discouraged by fear and learn to overcome it. They are becoming brave. They learn the thrill of taking risks and the wisdom in slowing down. They are becoming balanced. Riding a bike allows them to make a connection with others, nature, and themselves. They are becoming kind. These skills and character traits spill into the rest of their life as they continue to grow and have new experiences.

Whether it is singing from balconies, making signs for loved ones in assisted living, delivering meals to people in need, or sending letters to those in isolation, we have seen so many examples of how the world is becoming KIND. If we pay close attention, children are often the instigators of small, random acts of kindness. We see Strider riders all the time giving high fives, helping each other up hills, and taking breaks to sit together and share snacks. At Strider, we want to keep that kindness momentum going, both on and off the bike. We have put together suggestions for ways to show kindness and empathy to those around us. The world, right now, is depending on us all becoming the best we can be.

Let’s continue becoming kind together! For the month of July, join us for a game of KINDNESS BINGO.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:

  1. Download and print the KINDNESS BINGO card.
  2. Place numbers 1 -24 randomly in each empty square of the KINDNESS BINGO card.
  3. Each number has a correlating act of kindness.
  4. Check Strider’s FB and Instagram stories every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, beginning July 1st. We will “call out” one bingo number.
  5. Find the correlating act of kindness, and do it together as a family. Then, put an X over that number on your KINDNESS BINGO card.
  6. Keep playing until your family gets a BINGO!!
  7. Share your family’s stories and progress with #becomingkind or on our social media platforms @striderbikes.
