Check out this fun video from the Super Enduro in Liverpool, UK. An enduro course is a great example of what can be done on a STRIDER! Riding over/around tires, over 2x4's, and through soft dirt would be nearly impossible for a toddler on a heavy training wheeled bike or tricycle.
If you're in STRIDERville (aka Rapid City, SD) make sure to keep watching for info on STRIDER racing on January 4th at the Extreme Indoor Enduro!
Now get outside and have a great Saturday!

If you're anywhere near Austin, TX you'll want to go check out the 2013 Austin Fan Fest!

The STRIDER World Championships is always a fun event with a truly international contingency. This year we had participants from 11 countries including; Japan, Slovakia, & South Korea!
Not only do we have the unique privilege of hanging out and racing with them, but we also received unique gifts from their home countries.
International team; James, Todd, Mary, & Ryan show off a hand hammered knife set from Japan
Our European distributor, based in Slovakia, sent a local bottle of wine...it has since gone missing!
South Korea sent a gift box including a mother of pearl inlaid jewelry box.
We love to see all the new and returning STRIDER riders at the USA BMX National events! The season is nearly wrapped up, but if you're in Tulsa the final weekend in November make sure to check out the Grands at the QuikTrip Center. You can also look for events in your area on the STRIDER Calendar or find a local STRIDER friendly riding area.
