Drum Roll Please...Here Are The Top Two!

Written by
Yesterday we shared the fifth, fourth and third top picks...go check it out now if you missed it. Hopefully our top two favorite movie scenes with bikes don't disappoint! #2. "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" (1969) - This movie is set at the dawn of the popularization of the chain driven bicycle. The scene below is a trifecta of fun: 1. Paul Newman, 2. Hilarious stunt riding, and 3. Great Song. Watch for the bull to chase them after breaking through the fence! This is a clip, you may want to kick the STRIDER Riders our of the room…

Can Your Family Commit to 30 Days Of Biking?

Written by
In 2010 a couple bicyclists in Minneapolis, MN challenged each other to ride their bike every day for the month of April. Whether it was on a family ride around the block, on a long commute to work or just some mountain biking for fun. The first year there were around 600 locals and bike-savvy techies that picked up on #30daysofbiking and the a bunch of fun content that was being posted on Twitter. By year two there were over 2000 registered riders and this year there is already 2,500! This is where you come in! Go...Register...leave a comment about…

Written by
In honor of St. Patrick's Day we found the 2011 Irish Dowhnhill Championship...You wouldn't believe how difficult it is to find a decent video of a leprechaun on a bicycle! Alice and Andrew from Ireland(Below) were the closest we could get. If anybody does happen to dress their STRIDER Rider up for a St. Patty's Day parade make sure to share your photos and video at StriderLife.

Every 3 Minutes

2011 was a big year for STRIDER...here are a few highlights. 1. STRIDER Cup racing sailed across the Pacific (from Japan) and landed on American Soil! Two to five year olds from across the nation competed in varying venues from: BMX Tracks, USA Pro Cycling Challenge finish festival, Laguna Seca MotoGP, Gunnison River Festival, bike rodeos, moto-cross and cyclo-cross races not to mention countless sibling/neighborhood rivalries world-wide. The inaugural Strider Cup season culminated in October during a 3 day World Championship in Sarasota, FL! 2. StriderLife.com kicked off as the central social experience for everything STRIDER related. Whether you want…
The USA BMX Gator Nationals are taking place this weekend. It is the 3rd of 31 National STRIDER World Cup races that will be taking place all over the country. It sometimes seems overwhelming when we think about all of the pre-race, day of race and post-race work that needs to get done. When we're feeling like this we watch this video (from our Japanese friends) to remember how much fun the 2011 STRIDER World Championships were! The parents, and Strider employees had a blast (of course the STRIDER Riders did too!) Ryan McFarland, STRIDER founder and chief enthusiast, still…
