Happy Canada Day, Eh!

Written by
Our friends in the Great White North are celebrating Canada Day which commemorates: 1. The formation of Canada by the joining of three provinces in 1867 and 2. Canada's full independence from the United Kingdom in 1982! It looks like the snow has melted and Strider riding without mukluks and toques can commence. From the country that brought us Rick Moranis, Gordon Lightfoot, Geddy Lee, and the pager (aka beeper) comes some great footage of 2 Strider riding brothers (4 1/2 and 2 years old, although I'm not sure how old that makes them with the exchange rate). Have Fun,…

Happy Striderday From Poland!

Written by
Mamy nadzieję, masz wielki Striderday! We hope that you are having a great Striderday. Hopefully (depending on when you're reading this) you've already spent most of the day outside or you are getting all of your gear together to head outside for some fun! We found this really fun "old school" video on YouTube that we thought would be a great way to start or end your day. We're pretty sure that there was some digital manipulation to this, but we can't be %100 positive.

Custom Strider Modification

Written by
Custom Strider modifications have really taken off in Japan. Today's blog entry is a video that one of the "Team No Pedals" parents made showing how to put on a stem and handlebar combo that will make your Strider rider feel cooler than they already do! This can be completed at home with some relatively simple additions of a: head tube shim, an expander plug, a top cap, a stem (the shorter the better) and handlebars (not too wide!), which you should be able to pick up at your local bike shop. This is also a great way to ensure…

Striding Around Tokyo

Written by
Strider Cup is the brain child of our Japanese distributors and Striders have really taken off in Japan as a result. Every day we get videos and YouTube links sent with huge crowds of children riding their Striders. When we stumbled on the YouTube video below we couldn't help but smile at the change of pace. The two year old is taking a leisurely Stride through the city streets. The music is infectious, He's got a great smile and after only two months on his green Strider he is getting more adventurous!

Polska piątek Strider!

Written by
Poland checking in for our international Strider rider search! We found some great video of a Polish 2 year old Strider rider on Youtube that we wanted to share. Hopefully he is spreading the Strider message to the other local toddlers. He is really getting the hang of using the Launchpad footrests! As I take my two year old out for Strider rides I have found that crossing the Stride/Glide divide is definitely one of the early hurdles. She has figured out that the footrests are there. She has begun gliding with her feet off the ground on hills, but…
