The Great Bike Giveaway 2016


Once again, Strider is proud to be a part of the Friendship Circle of Michigan’s Great Bike Giveaway! Last year, with the help of generous donors like you, the giveaway awarded 17 Strider Bikes and several other adaptive bikes to children with special needs.

This year it’s going to be even better!


In March of 2016 the Great Bike Giveaway is hoping to give a bike to every contestant that enters!

Yes, you read that right… so now’s your chance to spread the word!
The process is simple:

1.) Go to the Great Bike Giveaway Website to enter and for complete rules about the contest.
2.) The contest starts on February 29th The Great Bike Giveaway will cap the amount of entries at 600 children— so you must act fast!
3.) Snap a photo of your child with special needs (or tell a parent of a child you know to snap a photo) and share their story.
4.) You will need to enlist the help of 10 friends to help spread the word anyway they can, through email, word of mouth, and especially social media. The Great Bike Giveaway calls these your “ambassadors”.
5.) Once your ambassadors have signed up, you’re in! Each ambassador is encouraged to raise $100 by spreading the word and encouraging others to provide online donations.

So what are you waiting for? Get your team of ambassadors ready and rally for a bike for a child with special needs!

At Strider we believe everyone should have the opportunity to experience life on two wheels!


Good luck and Stride on!

The Great Bike Giveaway!


Strider Bikes is proud to announce their partnership with The Friendship Circle of Michigan, a non-profit organization that provides programs and support to families and individuals with special needs.

For the third consecutive year Friendship Circle is holding the Great Bike Giveaway, a national contest giving away adaptive bikes to children with special needs. Bike companies from around the U.S. are donating bikes to the children and young adults who need them most, and Strider is excited to be able to join in on the fun!

Here’s how it works; Each bike page has a space where users can enter the contest. You can submit a picture of your child with special needs along with a short explanation of why your child needs an adaptive bike. One bike in each contest will be given away to the entry with the most nominations. Nominations are received from friends and family clicking the “nominate button” on your post. So share, share, and share some more!

Please join us in sharing these special stories. View, share, enter and/or donate to the Great Bike Giveaway and be a part of a beautiful and special community!
