STRIDER Progression With Nyla!

We get a lot of emails and questions on Facebook,Twitter and Strider Life about children starting out on their STRIDER. In this video we see Nyla progress from just straddling the bike and walking (day 1) to sitting and coasting with her feet up on the launchpad footrests (day 5).

We also see her plain black helmet gain stickers everyday ending in complete coverage.

The kicker? Curtis Mayfield soundtrack!

STRIDER Alumni Rocks Cuyuna!

Last time we checked in with Alex he was 3 years old and his Dad made the VERY awesome video of him STRIDER Riding at Cuyuna State Park in Minnesota.

Cut to 4.5 year old Alex and he's graduated to a pedal bike and riding the same trails with his Dad. You can tell from the smile on both of their faces that this is another STRIDER success story kicking off a life long love of all things two wheeled!

Stride On...Pedal Power!

Happy STRIDERday: Motorcycle Noises Edition!

We've set up elaborate STRIDER obstacle courses and we've set up cones in an empty parking lot. The kids seem to always have a great time! They have even more fun with sound effects. Wyatt and Jack have been practicing their motorcycle noises.

You should try sound effects like this next time you're riding bike ride with your kids. It will bring a smile to their faces and most likely yours as well.

Have a great Saturday from STRIDER!

Happy STRIDERday: Jackson, WY Edition

It's a short clip for this STRIDERday, but the  fact that it's from Jackson, WY makes up for that! Cash and Kane are two lucky brothers. As you can tell from the scenery Jackson is a special place. World class biking (Road & Mountain), skiing, climbing, rafting  in some of the most amazing mountains in the lower 48 are only some of the things that make the Tetons so great.

Kane is 3 and appears to be a pro. Cash (20 months) has only been on his STRIDER for a couple weeks, but I'm predicting a life long love of two wheeled adventure!

Have a great Saturday...Stride On Wyoming!
