Texas Governor declares Youth Cycling Day and Fort Worth Mayor to Give Little Riders Tips

Rapid City, SD (April 19, 2017) — Strider Bikes, the world’s leading manufacturer and marketer of children’s no-pedal balance bikes, is welcoming balance bike racing toddlers, some still in diapers, to the Strider Cup Race Presented by Dannon on May 6 at Sundance Square in Fort Worth, Texas.

This is the first time the event has been held in the Lone Star State. In honor of the event, Governor Greg Abbott has declared May 6 as Youth Cycling Day. Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price will stop by to give the littlest bike riders tips before the first race at 9 a.m.

Pasha Ali, three-year-old racer from Trophy Club, Texas, is registered and has been practicing his “Winner Dance” for several months. His father, Nur Ali, believes riding the Strider Bike has helped Pasha improve his balance, coordination and develop quicker reflexes.

Ali, who has nearly two decades of car racing under his seatbelt, said, “I’m very excited about this season for both of us, as this is the first year we’ll race in the same calendar year; he in the Strider Cup and myself in Red Bull Global Rallycross series.”

The race is the first of three events in the national Strider Cup racing series, in which toddlers as young as 18 months old put their Strider Bike skills to the test. Most of the registrants for the May 6 event are from Texas, but racers are also traveling from California, Colorado, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Washington. In addition to the races, these family-friendly events feature a free Strider Adventure Zone ride and play area with Strider Bikes to test ride.

The May 6 event includes races for 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-year-olds. The registration fee is $25 online or families can still register their young rider at the packet pick-up at Cabela’s on Friday, May 5, at 12901 Cabela Drive in Fort Worth. There is no same-day race registration. Racers will receive a Strider jersey, a number plate for their bike and a goodie bag valued at more than $50 with their registration. Pre-registration is open at http://www.striderbikes.com/fortworth.

A typical Strider race scene features hundreds of proud parents and grandparents cheering on racers while ringing cowbells as the starting gate drops. Toddlers, some still in diapers, lean forward, kick their short legs, and embark upon their 600-foot plus journey over obstacles such as dirt mounds and wooden ramps. All racers are treated to a celebratory podium award ceremony after their main race, where they receive either a trophy or a medal and pose for the cheering crowd.

The Strider Cup events also include races for individuals of all ages and abilities with special needs. Strider worked with Special Olympics to donate 20 bikes to KinderFrogs School at Texas Christian University, an early-intervention educational program for children ages 18 months to six years with Down syndrome and other developmental delays. The athletes are learning to ride for the May 6 race.

Special Needs Racers compete on the 12” models, as well as Strider’s larger 16” and 20” balance bikes, which the company launched in 2014 specifically for the special needs community. Strider has waived the registration fee for riders with special needs.
Strider is working with employees at the Dannon Company facility in Fort Worth to donate 50 Strider Bikes and helmets to families in the Fort Worth community.

The other two Strider Cup races will be held May 27 in Pittsburgh, PA, and June 10 in Lincoln, NE. Participating in any of these events automatically qualifies the rider for the Strider Cup World Championship, July 21-22 in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Strider event page, http://www.striderbikes.com/events has more information on all of the races.

Bombeck boys lower res

Collin and Graham Bombeck of Lincoln, Nebraska, were about 18 months old when their father, Derek, bought them Strider Bikes. The 3-year-old twins raced their bikes last year, and are planning to show off their improved skills at the 2017 Strider Cup Race sponsored by Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers on June 10, this year held at Tower Square (details at www.striderbikes.com/lincoln).

“It has been very interesting to watch them progress on their Strider Bikes,” said Derek. “They were very timid at first and have now gained a lot of balance, coordination and confidence. No matter how fast they get going down hills, they always seem to be in control and know how to safely slow down.”

Derek added, “Having twin boys makes everything a competition or race. They compete with one another in everything – from putting on their clothes to finishing their meals. Their Strider Bikes offer a constructive way for them to race while burning energy and having fun. A little competition is a good thing and it makes them each want to get better and faster for the next time.”

Collin and Graham sparked enthusiasm in their neighborhood for the Strider Bikes. After seeing the boys progress and balance, some neighbors were so impressed they bought bikes for their kids. 

As the Sales Development Manager at the Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau, Derek knew about the Strider Cup Race many months beforehand. He was very impressed with how professionally the race was organized and run.

“It was an amazing, fun and kid-friendly event for the families. What blew me away was all of the detail that the Strider team put into setting up the course, as well as the production of the event. It was first class.”

“I’m sure we’ll have even more families this year,” he added. “The thing I heard most was how people wished they would have gotten their kids in the event. After seeing the news and reading about it in the papers, families were hoping it would come back this year.”

Since the twins don’t understand the concept of time, Derek hasn’t told his them about this year’s race yet, “or they would constantly be asking if the race is today or tomorrow.”

“I’m sure they’ll be excited to get new shirts, as they still refer to last year’s shirts as their ‘cool’ shirts and always want to wear them. The medals and the bell attachments that they received were also pretty huge for them.”

You never know what cool item will be in the racer goodie bags!

Tyson.Roman standing.lower res

Meet Tyson and Roman, a.k.a. “TyRo.” They’re best buds who share a passion for biking. At just 2 years old, Tyson enlightened his pal Roman about how fun it is to ride and race Strider Balance Bikes. (in photo, Tyson is on left, Roman on right)

The two friends from Sugar Land, a suburb of Houston, first met at daycare when they were one year olds. They’re excited about heading to Fort Worth for the Strider Cup Race on May 6.  “TyRo” are often overheard by their teachers at school having fragmented conversations about bikes and going to the dirt track. 

Tyson’s dad is an avid mountain biker and began his balance bike research early on so that he and Tyson could share a hobby. They chose a Strider Bike because it was lightweight and had the smallest inseam so Tyson could start riding at 18 months old.

Recently, his proud dad created a video of his first mountain bike trail ride. If you don’t smile during these 60 seconds, you may want to have your lips checked. Tyson is riding ladder obstacles that some adults would skip. Impressive! Video of Tyson's First MTB Ride

“Riding the Strider Bike has been a huge confidence booster to an otherwise shy kid,” said Tyson’s mom Stella. “It's also helped him pick up riding a scooter almost instantly and it has improved his balance and agility. He was able to skip training wheels and go straight to a pedal bike a few months after he turned two!”

Besides mountain bike trails, Stella said Tyson rides his Strider Bike, “in malls, parks, the zoo, skate parks – pretty much anywhere until someone tells us to stop.” When he wants to go to the local BMX track in Pearland, he says, “Mommy! Go burt (dirt) track with Roman? I go fast.”

Roman is also two years old, born just nine days apart from Tyson. Roman’s mom, Suzanne, said she bought him a Strider Bike just shy of his second birthday because of its reputation, recommendation and how quickly he took to it after test driving Tyson’s.

“Roman has always been quite agile, and the Strider Bike has helped him further refine his agility and increase his speed,” said Suzanne. “He rides around the neighborhood, on local trails, at the BMX park and even inside the house.”

As soon as Roman wakes up, he asks, “Ride bike please?”

Sounds like a good morning mantra.

Jackson B. from Pittsburgh is raring to go for his hometown Strider Cup Race in Pittsburgh on May 27.

Jackson’s mother, Donata, heard about Strider Balance Bikes from customers who came into the children's second-hand store where she works. She also asked other moms via social media for recommendations on which brand/style balance bike to buy for his 3rd birthday at the end of January. The Strider Bike was the top choice.Jackson B final.lower res

“We bought the Strider Bike because we wanted him to be able to participate in the race,” she added. “We also liked that the bike went up to age 5 so he can get years of use, not just few months.”

Riding his Strider Bike in the last month has helped the speedy Jackson learn to pace himself.

“Jackson is naturally athletic and coordinated, but often so fast that he gets ahead of himself,” said Donata. “It’s taught him to slow down and learn how to ride without getting impatient. Not having pedals is teaching him how to steer the bike easier.”

“Overall the bike is really teaching him balance and independence, as well as focus and not getting so hyper and frustrated with riding.”

Jackson likes to hop on his Strider Bike every day, whether it’s riding circles inside the house, at a nearby park or around the neighborhood. Donata said they will, “try out the local dirt bike park this spring, and are very excited to be participating in the race.”

A young lad with succinct words, Jackson simply says "I love my bike,” when talking about his Strider.

We’ve heard that before … have you?

Canadian Strider Racers Headed to Pittsburgh

So far, two Canadian kids are signed up for the Strider Cup Race in Pittsburgh on May 27. One is driving more than 9 hours to compete on his Strider Balance Bike. How cool is that! The delicious Pittsburgh perogies aren’t the only reason they’re coming. These two are excited to see how their skills match up with young ones in the Northeast United States.

Riding helps Lucas’ eyes

Lucas G. is registered to compete in the 2-year-old class, and is traveling from Wasaga Beach, Ontario, for the event.lucas2

He received his Strider Bike when he was just 16 months old. His mother Stephanie said, “We chose a Strider Bike because we liked the way the bike was made and the different accessory offerings. They had Kawasaki green, so we knew it was a right fit.”

Lucas rides his Strider Bike at the Wasaga Beach BMX Park and around the neighborhood in warmer temperatures. During the winter months, his parents set up a little course in their basement to help the active tot burn off energy – and practice his skills.

“Riding has helped improve his balance, and also his eyesight,” said Stephanie. “Lucas has had glasses since he was one year old. We feel like the riding has helped him focus and his eyes are getting better.”

What does Lucas say about his Strider Bike? Stephanie shared, “He always wants to ride and says ‘let’s do dirt jumps.’”

So do we!

Strider is “the coolest”

Four-year-old Jared C. from Espanola, ON, received his Strider Bike on his 2nd birthday and says his Strider Bike, “is the coolest.” We agree.

His mother, Felicia C., said, “when I bought him his Strider Bike, all he wanted to do was ride to the park and places and around the house.”

“It’s helped him with his balance,” she added. “He even started riding a two-wheeled pedal bike at three years old, without using training wheels.”Jared Creaser lower res

Asked why she chose a Strider Bike over other brands, Jared’s mom Felicia C. said, “I decided to buy a Strider Bike because I liked the design, how light it was and just the overall set up and attachments you could get.”

The Canadian winters don’t slow down Jared. He rides through the snow with his ski attachment. His family is used to driving for track time. In the winter, they sometimes travel six hours to the Rock City Indoor BMX track in Greenville, MI. In the summer, Jared races at the Milton BMX track in Ontario, a 5-hour drive.

Jared’s family will be traveling more than nine hours to Pittsburgh for the race. They’re also planning to go to the Strider Cup Race in Lincoln, NE, on June 11, and possibly the 2017 Strider Cup World Championship in Salt Lake City on July 21-22.

Now that’s dedication.

When your dad drives a race car and you see how much fun he has on the track, wouldn’t you be excited to get on your race face and compete? Pasha Ali just turned three years old, and is pumped up for the Strider Cup Race Series, which kicks off in Fort Worth, Texas, on May 6. He’s already practicing his “Winner’s Dance.”

Pasha’s father, Nur Ali, has 19 years of racing under his belt. He raced for Team Pakistan in A1 Grand Prix - World Cup of Motorsport, captured two Legends Car Championships, and two Formula Mazda Championships. Nur has competed in twelve countries on five continents, as well as in select NASCAR Xfinity Series and ARCA Racing Series races. He now races in the Red Bull Global Rallycross (GRC) Series.Pasha Ali 1 lower res

Nur first learned about balance bikes while surfing online and fell in love with the concept. After purchasing a balance bike when Pasha turned two years old, Nur went online to look for a racing series for balance bikes. He was impressed with how quickly Pasha progressed and knew if he found a series for Pasha to race in, that would accelerate his skills.

He came across Strider Bikes and the Strider Cup Racing series and said, “Imagine my excitement at that point; I told my wife, my sports agent, my brother and my parents about it and bought him a Strider bike.”

Riding his Strider Bike has helped Pasha improve his balance, coordination and develop quicker reflexes. With Nur’s motorsports background, he has been able to guide him on his balance bike and get him up to speed with things he’s learned over the years of being a race car driver.

Pasha loves his Strider Bike so much that he is constantly asking Nur to race him by running behind him. He says that he wants to be the 2017 Strider Cup Champion. Pasha takes one of Nur’s trophies and does a mock race inside the house. When he "wins" over Nur, he takes the trophy, climbs the staircase in the house to the top step and uses it as his own "winner's podium". He takes the trophy and raises it over his head and does the "Winner Dance"; what the family calls his celebratory gig.

He spent the entire 2015 Red Bull GRC race season and partial 2016 Red Bull GRC race season at the track with Nur, and he loves watching the racing on his tablet.

The Ali family is planning to travel to all four Strider Cup races this year; Fort Worth, TX, on May 6, Pittsburgh, PA, on May 27, Lincoln, NE, on June 11 and the championships in Salt Lake City on July 21-22.

Pasha, who is also known as a fashion model with a Texas PR agency, usually rides his bike in the neighborhood, local parks, and the golf course behind his house. The Ali family is also planning to go to some local BMX bike tracks to practice for the upcoming series.

“I’m very excited about this season for both of us, as this is the year both father and son race in the same calendar year; he in the Strider Cup and myself in Red Bull GRC series,” said Nur. “I've also got my sports agent working on possibly picking up a sponsorship for Pasha. That would be pretty cool!”

This will be on Friday May 5th at Cabela's Fort Worth (12901 Cabela Dr, Fort Worth, TX 76177) from 5 pm to 7 pm. We will also be conducting a “Tech Inspection” both then and on race day. For more information regarding Tech Inspection please look HERE.

Please bring your racer, bike, and helmet to packet pickup on Friday. If you are unable to do so we can finalize Tech Inspection on race day. Any concerns would need to be addressed before the child is allowed to race so again we would suggest attending packet pickup on Friday if at all possible. Showing up on Friday also gives us the opportunity to address any issues in a calm non-rushed atmosphere and to tell you what to expect on race day. We would also like to inform you about important times as related to your race class, how the "HEATS" (1st Race) and "MAINS" (2nd Race) will work, and how the awards ceremony will flow.

Please bring the electronic or printed tickets that you will be received after you registered to packet pickup as it will help speed up the process. If you will be checking in, picking up the registration bag and doing Tech Inspection on Saturday (race day) we would recommend doing so at least 45 minutes prior to the beginning of your racer's age group.
