Balance Bike Toddler Athletes Compete in Rapid City, SD

Family Fun Day Activities for All Bike Enthusiast Families

Rapid City, S. D.  June 17, 2013  ­ These days, even preschoolers can be national race champions. On Saturday July 13, Strider Sports Intl., Inc., is throwing down the gauntlet to all fun loving toddlers and their bike enthusiast families by hosting the first ever STRIDER U.S. Championship balance bike race!

This national event will see STRIDER’s famous no-pedal bike race course take over Rapid City’s Main Street Square as toddlers face off at the start line to show their skills on two wheels. The young athletes will get the chance to showcase their ability to balance, handle their STRIDER No- Pedal balance bikes, and compete like real cyclists on the custom designed racecourse.

The event also includes fun activities for the entire family with the racing action starting at 10:00am for two years and under. Three year olds compete at 11:00am, with four year olds at 1:00pm and five year olds closing down the racing at 2:00pm in the afternoon. The U.S. Championship is a qualifying event for the 3rd Annual STRIDER World Championshiptaking place in Sarasota, FL October 11-13, 2013.  

“There’s absolutely nothing more amazing than watching toddlers lined up on their STRIDER bikes like they’re in the Olympics racing for gold,” says Strider Founder and CEO, Ryan McFarland. “And the race course itself is going to be incredibly fun, combining all of the best parts of what we’ve learned from holding STRIDER races around the world. The U.S. Championship event is just one part of our global movement to bring early childhood riding skills to young children everywhere” , says McFarland.

The top 8 finishers will get trophies in a true podium ceremony, and all participants will receive a medal. Each registered STRIDER rider will also receive a Strider backpack and a Strider race jersey.   Online registration is open until Friday, July 9 at 12:00 p.m. (MST) and costs $15 per rider. Same day registration will begin at 9 am. Parents should register racers at least 30 minutes prior to race start time.

Located in the Black Hills of South Dakota and just 30 minutes from the Mt. Rushmore National Monument, the STRIDER US Championship also makes a great stop for any family on their summer vacation.

For more information about the U.S. Championship and STRIDER bikes, and to register a child for the event, visit the event website or go to www.StriderBikes.com .
