Mazda Raceway

In July and August Strider traveled to Laguna Seca and Indianapolis to show our bikes to the next generation of MotoGP racers!

The Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix and Red Bull Indianapolis GP are part of an internationally renowned MotoGP series where the best motorcycle riders from around the world compete for the MotoGP World Championship title. These daring riders provide heart-pumping action while attacking the course in close quarter and knee-dragging fashion. The sound, speed, cheers and action captivates fans young and old!

Thanks to all the STRIDER riders for coming out and to all their parents for bringing them.

We've got some great photos and video highlights from both events:

STRIDER Adventure Zone Is Fun For All!

STRIDER® Adventure Zone events are sweeping the nation and encouraging new two-wheeled riders at every stop.

A STRIDERAdventure Zone is a safe and friendly environment that encourages kids 18 months to 5 years old to explore mobility on two wheels and experience the challenge and thrill of riding on unique terrain and obstacles. The Adventure Zone course can be set up in as small as a 15’ x 30’ area, inside or outside, and on almost any terrain.

From the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix in Laguna Seca, CA, every Finish festival during both the Amgen Tour of California and the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, as well as Every USA BMX Nationals will all include an Adventure Zone! They are a great draw for young families and add something for the younger kids to do at almost any event. Toddlers love the mobility, freedom and fun the Adventure Zone offers, and parents love watching happy children and fun activities that keep them occupied.

If you have an event coming up in your area and want to look into a STRIDER Adventure Zone, give us a call (605)342-0266!

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 tips on getting your kids to ride more or want to share photos, video or stories of their Stridering successes, this is the place to do it!

3. Licensed STRIDERS with Yamaha, Honda, Monster Jam and Nitro Circus instilling a love for two wheels at an even younger age in the power sports industry.

4. Sold 171,000 STRIDER Bikes...that's one every three minutes! We're looking forward to getting even more toddlers on two wheels this year. Here's to a great 2012 with the best fans, parents, grandparents, riders & people on the planet!

Strider at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca!

The Strider World Cup racing action at the Mazda raceway Laguna Seca was amazing!

We had 30 racers show up for the big event with many others stopping by just to do some Strider test rides. We even had six of our test riders from Saturday decide to race in the Strider World Cup on Sunday after only having ridden a Strider for a couple hours!

One couple drove for 5 hours to bring their Son (Jacob) ride in the Strider World Cup. "He placed last, but we had a blast!" ~Mom

The crowd was very enthusiastic as well.  We had to discourage some who were contemplating placing bets on the racers.  Another fan told us that "The Strider World Cup was the best race that he'd seen all week-end"

We have to agree with all the sentiments.  Thank You to all who came out, tested, raced, retweeted, etc during the Red Bull US Grand Prix!

See You Next Year!

StriderDay: US Moto GP!

If you haven't already heard we're adding a Strider Cup race at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca the 24th of July! Sundays at the Mazda Raceway are the most heavily attended race days. Last year over 60,000 people were there to cheer on their favorite Moto GP racers! This could be the chance of a lifetime for your little Strider rider!

With that in mind we've found a highlight from 2010 practice rides! Which reminds us...The Strider adventure zone will be set up at the Raceway on Friday and Saturday if your toddler wants to get in some practice laps!

Enjoy the video, then head over to register to get your Strider rider in on some of the racing action at Laguna Seca...maybe they'll be the next great Moto GP champion!
