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!

The things that can be done on two wheels is truly amazing! Once again Danny Macaskill (One of our favorites) is helping to inspire and redefine the limits of what is "possible".
Check out this amazing video of Danny showing off his, often heart stopping, riding abilities in his native Scotland. After you're done watching with your STRIDER Rider make sure to spend some time on two wheels with them today!

Can you think of a better way to buy a STRIDER Heading into the holiday season? We can't!Make sure that when you purchase a Suzuki STRIDER Bike that you enter code "RICKY4" at checkout. Not only do you get a race inspired Suzuki STRIDER, $20.00 of your total purchase goes to the Kidz 1st Fund (one of Ricky Carmichael's favorite charities) AND the first 30 will get a Ricky Carmichael autographed number plate!
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.
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 also played a crucial role in testing our STRIDER Racing podium set up before big races.
We'll miss you Chance, old buddy!
On the Official YouTube Channel for Sony's Actiom Cam a documentary movie series "100 Days of Tele and His Red Ride" is now showing!
The movie captures a 2 year old boy Tele's 100 day challenge to become a STRIDER Rider. It shows his progress from his first encounter with red STRIDER, all filmed with Sony's wearable "Action Cam".
There will be a series of 8 movies, with the first two already uploaded. Go to https://www.youtube.com/user/ActionCamfromSony and cheer on our young hero Tele!!
