Thank You Soooo much for coming out to the 2017 Strider Cup World Championship!

Wow – what an amazing record/breaking day of international toddler Strider bike racing! Nearly 400 toddlers from 14 countries and 30 riders with special needs competed for the worlds fastest Strider bike rider in Saturday's races held at Gallivan Center in Salt Lake City. Little legs lined up behind the 24 foot start gate and strode over, through and around various obstacles along the 777 foot custom built race course. We all witnessed little Finn transfer up four times in the 3-year old category and we were blown away by the speed of the Japanese riders who in the end swept all the titles. Happy, smiling faces received medals and trophies as champions were crowned in 2 and under, 3, 4, 5 year old, and special needs divisions. What a wonderful day of making new friends, riding, Dannon Yogurt mustaches, and racing!
 
A huge thank you to all the racers, their families, and to our title sponsor Dannon and their staff from West Jordan Utah for the support, yogurt and for donating bikes to the Salt Lake Head Start. A big thanks also to Competitive Cyclist for the Free Strider Adventure Zone and to LDS Hospital, The Color Run, Chick-Fil-A and Real Shades. Thanks also to the Gallivan Center as well as the City of Salt Lake City for their support! We had a fantastic time this weekend and loved hearing the stories you shared about your child’s experience with their Strider bike. Thank you for the hospitality and hope to see you in 2018!

      Thank You Soooo much for coming out to the 2016 Strider Cup World Championship!

      What a great finish to the US 2016 Strider Cup racing season! With stops in Lincoln, Nebraska, Salt Lake City, Utah, Spokane, Washington, and finally our Strider Cup World Championship in San Francisco, California it was definitely a year to remember!

      The Strider Cup World Championship on San Francisco's Pier 35 (right next to Fisherman’s Wharf Pier 39) was an amazing event! The venue had the advantage of being covered, but with the large garage doors open felt like you were on the water with beautiful San Francisco vistas. With a total of 302 Strider racers it was the largest race we've ever held. Nine different countries participated with the largest groups from Japan (25) and Equador (15).

      Our hopes and goals for this race was simple, to give riders (of all abilities) an enjoyable weekend! Hopefully, your Strider rider will remember the camaraderie, fun race competition, and continue to gain confidence on their Strider Bikes!

      Over 270 STRIDER Riders came out for the 2015 STRIDER World Championship at Main Street Square in Rapid City, SD! The 5th annual race had participants from Canada, China, Ecuador, Japan, Slovakia, and all over the US. It's always fun to see international friendships rekindled as previous champions return to reclaim their title in the next age bracket. We also had a number of racers who had participated in one of the four 2015 STRIDER Championship Series races held in Florida, California, Pennsylvania, and Utah.

      The weekend was full of family focused events and everyone had a great time despite high temperatures.

      Friday night was a chance to get to know the lay out of the track and for last chance qualifiers. We capped Friday night off with the STRIDER Corporate Challenge! Eight local businesses had a blast racing the track in a relay. The best part? We raised $1,000 for Youth & Family Services and $1,000 for Black Hills Works.

      Saturday was RACE DAY! Some riders were fast, some were slow, but smiles were out in abundance! It was another hot one and many of the racers took advantage of the water hazard for a quick (sometimes mid-race) cool-down! Abbey Road (a Beatles cover band) played in Main Street Square at 7pm. Many of the STRIDER Riders stayed to get rid of even more energy through some pretty amazing dancing skills.

      Check out the social media links at the bottom of the page to make sure you don't miss the2016  STRIDER Championship Series dates and locations when they're announced! You should also head over to our Flickr Page to see some amazing photos of all the little racers:

      Finallya huge shout out to all the families and STRIDER Riders that came out!

      We also had a ton of support from some amazing sponsors: FedEx, Rapid City CVB, Scull Construction, Courtesy Subaru, Honey Stinger, Black Hills & Badlands, KIND Snacks, SCheels, Western Dakota Insurors, Ketel Thorstenson, Black Hills Power, Black Hills Urgent Care, Security First Bank, and Vast Broadband.

      See you next year!

      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!

      "I’m super excited to visit Japan in December and be a part of the Japan STRIDER Cup Finals.  Our Japanese Strider distributor, Mr. Okajima and the Mamegyorai team, do an amazing job of running events and the Japanese Strider riders and parents are so enthusiastic that I’m sure this is going to be the biggest and best Strider event I've ever attended.  This will be my first time visiting Japan so after the race, I’m looking forward to seeing some of the sights."  ~Ryan McFarland (Founder and Chief Enthusiast of Strider)

      Japan is where STRIDER Cup started, so it is fitting that Ryan will be there to see the largest STRIDER racing event EVER! December 9th is going to be a crazy day of STRIDER World Cup racing action in Yokohama! Word is that there will be an autograph session as well...luckily James (Int'l business manager) will be along to keep Ryan grounded.
