At Strider we get to hear a ton of fun stories from parents of toddlers learning to ride bikes and their amazing adventures. The pictures we receive could literally have us overdosing on cuteness on any given day. It is truly one of the most rewarding parts of our job!
I have to admit, though, I have a soft spot in my heart for the letters, emails and pictures we get from therapists who are using our bikes as a tool to improve the health and lives of kids with disabilities. The therapists are thankful for a bike that they can use to help the kids in their work and we are thankful for the amazing things they do to help kids every day!
From increasing balance, assisting with work on range of motion, to building strength, and aiding in bilateral motor coordination therapists are using STRIDER Bikes as tools. The kids are having fun and often don’t even realize they aren’t just playing!
Here are just a couple pictures and a couple stories to warm your heart today:
”Using the Strider Super 16 is the perfect tool to integrate balance, coordination, and strength along with giving kids with various challenges the confidence and independence that they would never experience with a standard bike. It’s priceless to see the smiles on their faces when they finally grasp the concept. Thanks Strider!!!” Kim Burke, MPT
“I have a few of one little camper on your bikes so I’ve attached them here. His Mom told me that the therapists had him using them a great deal though the week because he enjoyed them so much and they helped him work his quads which he needed to accomplish one of his goals for the week of going up and down stairs using alternate feet. He achieved that goal and others during his week at camp. And his parents said they’re going to be buying a Strider Bike for him now because of this experience.” Sarah Hartway, Adam’s Camp
Has your child learned everything they need to know on a STRIDER already? Here's a video to make you realize there is always more to learn!
The Japanese always have a strong showing at the World Championship Trick Competion. Check out this great video from Team Trick Riders...has your STRIDER rider perfected any of these moves?
Have a great Saturday!
The STRIDER Super 16 was developed for older kids still having balance issues, and playing around at the skate park. Chris, our South African distributor, is a big BMX rider and thought it would be fun to see what a local racer could do with it. The results are pretty cool!
If you thought STRIDER Bikes were only for toddlers, think again.
Now get outside and have a great Saturday!
People are constantly surprised to learn that the world-wide headquarters for Strider Sports International, Inc., is located in Rapid City, SD. Even people in Rapid City are surprised!! So where is Rapid City? It’s nestled in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota, in the southwestern corner of the state, 30 minutes from Mount Rushmore.
We’re putting Rapid City on the map as we’re hosting our 2014 STRIDER World Championship Race here in September 2014 (Watch for more details. If you’ve never visited, what are you waiting for?? This place is awesome—no smog, no crazy traffic, low crime—just clean air, beautiful mountains, great biking trails,and friendly people! We have a strong presence in this region of the U.S. with lots of children riding STRIDERS! But our presence extends far beyond the central US! In fact, STRIDER™ Bikes are available all over the US, as well as in 70+ countries, through our awesome global network of STRIDER distributors, and countless sub-distributors and dealers!
In the next weeks and months, we’ll begin introducing each of our distributors to you (pictured above with Strider staff at the 2013 STRIDER World Championship in Sarasota, FL), and sharing more of our global Strider culture. Stay Tuned.
Note to self: It's cold and snowy...time to head to the desert! Check out this cool STRIDER video with your little ones and then find somewhere cool to ride!
