New Years Resolutions

The Earth has completed yet another trip around the sun...that means time to make at least one resolution. I'm taking inspiration from this cool footage from the Library of Congress Video Archive where the employees of Parke Davis can be seen leaving their jobs in 1899 by walking or riding a bike.

Before you say anything we know that Automobiles were invented less than 15 years before this footage was shot, that they were unattainable luxuries for the average factory worker, that they have improved the lives and mobility of most of the world since and lets face it...they can be pretty fun to drive!

So, without looking down on anybody for driving a vehicle, We resolve to ride our bikes more frequently (starting with short trips) and to ride more with our kids! Did any of you make bike related resolutions for 2012? Leave a Comment

Have Fun, Ride Safe and Ride More in 2012...Happy New Year!

Like Father, Like Son: Follow The Leader

Here is a great video of Paxton on his KTM STRIDER following his Dad over objects in the back yard.  This is a fun way to encourage your kids to try obstacles on their STRIDER.  Going up and over patio stones, 2 x 4's and off of small curbing will help your STRIDER rider improve there riding and balance.

This also has the added benefit of improving a parent's balance while showing their kids that being out of doors on two wheels is fun! Whether you're on your trials motorcycle, mountain bike or beach cruiser get out for a ride soon.

The Bendy Guys are Stealing Striders!

We often hear stories of siblings stealing a STRIDER, but this photo of wooden bendy guys caught in the act is a first. Hopefully they don't get too far with this STRIDER or there is going to be a disappointed child on Christmas morning!  Go check out some more antics from "The Bendy Guys" to add a smile to your day.

His Inseam might not be big enough.

Japanese STRIDER Commercial...Take Two!

Last month we posted this great animated commercial on our Facebook page.  It is being aired on the Japanese Cartoon Network and is a lot of fun to watch.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eervqbh5Y98[/youtube]

They are at it again! This time they've replaced the cartoons for highlights from their STRIDER Cup season and some very fun trick riding. This one is great because it shows riders all the way from beginners to some of their most advanced riders.

We can't wait to watch these great tricks and fast Strider Cup racers again at the 2012 STRIDER World Championship in Sarasota, FL!

The Boulder Indoor Velodrome is an awesome place if you like bikes. Here is a fun video of some of the Friday night racing action with a few STRIDER cameos to boot.  Make sure you head over for the Cycle Tyke classes for kids from 2-10 with the youngsters all riding STRIDERS!

This last summer they brought down a team of STRIDER riders for the STRIDER World Cup races at the USA Pro Cycling Challenge...they did VERY well.

Watch the video, put on your lycra, grab your track bike and have a great weekend!
