Strider Brings Fun for Kids to Major League Triathlon Series
Strider Adventure Zones to Teach Riding Skills to Kids 2 to 5 Years Old
Rapid City, SD (April 12, 2016) — The country may not be quite ready for Toddler Triathlons, but kids as young as 18 months can learn to ride a bike and have fun at this month’s Major League Triathlon (MLT) event kicking off in Temple, Texas. Thanks to Strider, the leader in no-pedal balance bikes and its famous Strider® Adventure Zone, parents and spectators visiting the Major League Triathlon weekend of events can introduce the youngest members of the family to the fun of riding a bike. Ideal for toddlers and kids up to age five, the Strider Adventure Zone is a safe, free, fun, and friendly environment where all young riders can take a spin around the specially designed course of ramps and obstacles. Strider Bikes help children develop vital balance and coordination skills needed to ride on two wheels, while the Adventure Zone course allows riders of all abilities to take their time getting comfortable on a bike as they socialize, play, and show off to their parents.
“A big thing for us is making everyone feel comfortable to get involved at our events,” said MLT CEO Daniel Cassidy. “That includes children, and we know that having Strider on site with their Adventure Zone will make our weekends even more conducive to families.”
Ryan McFarland, Strider Founder and CEO agrees, “At Strider, we go where the action is. The Major League Triathlon events are full of families and athletes who love the outdoors, so they are a perfect venue for our Adventure Zones.”
A fun event for the entire family, the 2016 Major League Triathlon - Temple takes place April 15-17. The Strider Adventure Zone will be open Saturday, April 16 from 12:00 noon – 3:30 p.m. at the Mayborn Convention Center in Temple, TX. The MLT festival will include food vendors, craft beer vendors, game zones featuring SpikeBall, interactive expos, MLT Pro interaction, a headliner concert featuring Russell Dickerson, and more! Three other MLT events (and Strider Adventure Zones) will take place throughout the summer and fall in Sarasota, Florida; Lincoln, Nebraska; and Greater Portland, ME.
