Happy STRIDERday: Bike Music

At STRIDER, we love bikes! We use them for fun, commuting, family time, getting groceries, and much more. This cool video from our friends at Rocky Mountain Bicycles will add an entirely new perspective to what can be done with a bike.

Watch the video and then get outside, ride your bike, and make some music of your own!

As lightweight mountable/wearable cameras become more popular the videos we find on YouTube keep getting cooler. Here's a fun one of Benjie out for a ride with his Dad 3 weeks after getting his STRIDER. You can tell that he's getting more comfortable; lifting up his feet, balancing while moving slowly, and racing his Dad. 

If you're having troubles getting your little gal or guy out on their STRIDER take a hint from this video. If you're on a bike yourself it will most likely be more fun for both you and your STRIDER rider!

Have a great Saturday...now get outside and have some fun!

Happy STRIDERday: Danny In San Francisco

I bet the last thing you thought you'd see in the STRIDER blog is an advertisement for a Remington razor. Once you watch it you'll know why it's on here.

This quote from the movie is one of the reasons that Danny McCaskill is one of our favorite guys to watch ride; "There's a real sort of feeling of joy and accomplishment...that's why you ride"

Check it out with the STRIDER riders in your life and let us know what their responses are.

In honor of St. Patrick's Day we found the 2011 Irish Dowhnhill Championship...You wouldn't believe how difficult it is to find a decent video of a leprechaun on a bicycle! Alice and Andrew from Ireland(Below) were the closest we could get. If anybody does happen to dress their STRIDER Rider up for a St. Patty's Day parade make sure to share your photos and video at StriderLife.

[caption id="attachment_3377" align="aligncenter" width="265" caption="Alice and Andrew, Irish STRIDER Riders Extraordinaire!"][/caption]

I think our favorite part of this video (besides the amazing downhill course) is how casually some of the riders are dressed, Several are wearing t-shirts and shorts. In most other countries the riders are fully padded up for a race like this. Just goes to show you how tough the Irish are!

Happy STRIDERday: Evel Knievel Edition

Hello all you STRIDER riders and fans. Hope you're having a pleasant Saturday. As I was looking for a Travis Pastrana video to post for the STRIDERday entry this retro reminder of dare-devil Evel Knievel caught my eye.

In a lot of ways Travis is following in his tire tracks.  They've both jumped a lot of things and have both broken a lot of bones.

Check out the video and have a great day with your little STRIDER dare-devils Riders.
