We had a record 63 STRIDER Riders at the 2015 Extreme Indoor Enduro in STRIDERville (aka Rapid City, SD)!

Steep hills, log obstacles, trees and a packed starting line challenged the riders of every age. We had parents, big siblings, and Strider staff around the course to offer the occasional helping help. Even though the course was tough there were smiles on every face!

Make sure that when you purchase a Suzuki STRIDER Bike that you enter code "RICKY4" at checkout.

R.I.P. Chance

 

Strider lost a great friend and long time familiar face around the office this week. If you've ever been to STRIDER HQ there is a good chance you've met Chance

Chance was a rescue dog who became Joe McFarland's (STRIDER Co-owner) best friend and constant companion.

ChanceInTheLobby

He was the building greeter. Planting himself in the lobby waiting for somebody to arrive hopefully with a treat in hand or at least a scratch on the head. He also loved cuddling with toddlers and getting his daily treat from the UPS delivery driver.

Chance

Chance also played a crucial role in testing our STRIDER Racing podium set up before big races.

We'll miss you Chance, old buddy!
