Strider Family Fun Day!

Written by
[caption id="attachment_2151" align="aligncenter" width="614" caption="Everybody present and accounted for!"][/caption] On Saturday, the sixteenth of July, Strider Staff and Family got together for a bike ride on the Mickelson Trail in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. An especially scenic ten mile section was chosen from over 100 available miles to ride. A great time was had by all from the youngest (Finian 9 months) to the oldest Joe "Grillmaster" McFarland (We're not telling). Most of the Strider riders rode for a mile or two then took a break in a pull-behind trailer or riding up front with a parent.…

Children's Home Society Fix A Bike Day!

Written by
The Children's Home Society of South Dakota serves over 2,000 children every year from 4-13 years old. Most of these kids are victims of abuse and neglect. A large stable of bikes is one way that the Children's Home Society tries to give these kids a sense of normalcy. We have donated Striders in the past, which get used when they have younger kids in residence, but the majority are already riding pedal bikes. Strider employees were able to pay a visit to CHS and sling some wrenches; fixing brakes, derailleurs, oiling chains and tightening bolts. Hopefully this will be…

Striderday: Back to the Basics

Written by
Today for our random Striderday post we're taking a look back at the roots of mountain biking! Strider was started from a love of Mountain and dirt bike riding. The folks in the YouTube clip stripped their "klunkers" down to the bare minimum for a new style of riding. Strider has done the same by stripping all of the excess off a bike designed for the youngest riders to get back to the basics, learn balance and to have a blast!

Chance the Strider Shop Dog

Written by
Almost every company in the bike industry has their loyal shop dog. Typically they have a pretty lush life: drinking out of the toilet, sneaking treats from desks and workbenches and all the petting they can handle. This attention makes them extra loyal and generally fun to be around, they brighten up the shop and give everybody their much needed Dog fix throughout the day. Chance is the Strider Shop Dog. He's a good boy...yes you are! (Sorry for the digression there) Today we caught Chance patiently waiting for his daily treat from the UPS man. He's loyal, but he…
