Strider Balance Bikes Exhibiting at the American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo)

Popular Strider No-Pedal Balance Bikes Teach Riding Skills to Toddlers

Rapid City, SD (October 4, 2016) — Strider Sports International Inc., the world’s premier manufacturer and marketer of children’s no-pedal balance bikes, will be exhibiting at the AIMExpo October 13-16, 2016, at the Orange County Convention Center, 9800 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32869. Stop by booth #2643 to learn how toddlers as young as 18 months are quickly and safely learning to ride on two wheels.

 

Strider will be debuting its newest products, the Strider® Rocking Base and the Realtree® Strider  12”Custom Balance Bike. The Rocking Base easily attaches to any 12-inch Strider Balance Bike and allows the youngest member of the family to play with, rock, and ride a Strider Bike on a safe and stable base until they are old enough to ride the bike – which is typically around 18 months. The Realtree Strider Bike is customized with the official Realtree (camo) graphics on a black Strider 12 Classic model.

 

The company also recently announced the license for sales of the Honda Strider 12 Sport Balance Bikes has been expanded worldwide. The other officially licensed, custom models that will be on display in the Strider booth include the Harley-Davidson®, Suzuki, Husqvarna, and KTM Strider Bikes. There is a perfect Strider bike for every toddler! Distribution and sponsorship opportunities are available.

 

By using a Strider Bike, young riders from 18 months to 5 years get to experience the fun and freedom of riding a bike without relying on restrictive training wheels or tricycles. A university study concluded that participants quickly improved their balancing skills by using a Strider Bike.

 

The purpose of the AIMExpo is to serve as the catalyst to bring together industry, press, dealers and consumers in a single arena that creates a grand stage for motorcycling in the U.S. and North America. The AIMExpo will have international impact within the motorcycling community.

STRIDER Track Highlight: Charlotte BMX

Charlotte BMX - STRIDER Track

Florida is one of the hot spots for BMX racing in the US and Charlotte BMX is definitely one of the more unique tracks. Their signature yellow announcers nest and bridge are mirrored in their amazing STRIDER specific track! 

We sent track operator, Amanda Carr (yes, THAT Amanda Carr), and asked her some questions about the construction of the track and the success of their STRIDER program.

1. Where are you located?:  Charlotte BMX is located in Punta Gorda, FL.  and online at www.CharlotteBMX.net and on FaceBook.

2. When are you open?:  STRIDER practice ($3) is Monday & Wednesday 6pm-8pm, Sunday 2pm-4:30pm with STRIDER races ($5) the 2nd and 4th Sunday of every month at 3:45pm.

3. Why did you build a STRIDER track?:  Charlotte BMX understands the root of BMX Racing is with the youth. We recognize that STRIDER BIkes will help build rider retention and an overall enjoyable family experience at the BMX track!

4. Completion date, cost, and time spent?:  The track was completed on January 1st, 2013. It took about 6 months to completely build it, but racing/practice took place throughout the building process. Total cost was around $1,500.

5. Space and Materials:  Base is 8-10 loads of fill dirt with a surface top of 1-2 loads of 80/20 Red clay and Soil Tac. Track was built with volunteers, a small tractor, shovels, rakes and concrete mixer (for soil tac and slurry).

6. Track Layout:  Total course length is 127 ft. The track consists of Starting hill (7.5 ft wide), 3 turns, 9 rollers, and a 10 ft wooden bridge!

7. Overall Experience: STRIDERS are a great way to get little ones started with BMX racing. Families with multiple children, STRIDERS are a way for the younger siblings to get started and have fun at the track! Charlotte BMX races our STRIDERS at the beginning of our races (on the big track), the parents and riders enjoy watching the little ones stride! They add a new element to our facility.

If you are from the Punta Gorda area, or are ever in the area, make sure to stop by and say hello to Amanda and don't forget to bring your STRIDER riders!
