Strider Adventure Zones Teach Toddlers How To Ride On Two Wheels

Rapid City, South Dakota (March 21, 2016) — Strider Sports International, Inc., the world’s premier manufacturer and marketer of children’s no-pedal balance bikes, invites you and your family out to motorcycle tracks around the country for exciting racing and toddler-friendly activities at the 2016 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship. Starting April 15 and continuing through the fall, Strider Bikes will be on-site in the Strider Adventure Zone at the tracks at Road Atlanta, New Jersey Motorsports Park, Virginia International Raceway, Road America, Barber Motorsports Park, and at Utah Motorsports Campus. Visit the Strider Events Calendar for more information.

Bring the family to the track on Saturday (8 a.m.-5 p.m.) or Sunday (8 a.m.-5 p.m.) and look for the Strider Adventure Zone, where children as young as 18 months to kids five years old can test ride a Strider Bike for free to discover that feeling of pure joy and freedom that happens when you ride off on two wheels. Children ages 16 and under are free.

Strider Adventure Zones are safe and friendly environments that encourage kids of all abilities from 18 months to 5 years old to test ride Strider Bikes and play with other kids, all while improving and developing fundamental bike handling skills in a custom-designed area complete with ramps and pennants. This safe and friendly environment encourages kids to explore mobility on two wheels, boost their confidence as they learn new abilities, and experience the challenge and thrill of riding Strider Bikes on unique terrains and obstacles.

MotoAmerica is a professional motorcycle road racing series sanctioned by the AMA and FIM and supported by Dorna. The primary goal of MotoAmerica is to reinvigorate motorcycle racing in North America, reintroducing the most exhilarating motorsport in history to fans while grooming a new generation of American and international racers for the world stage. MotoAmerica works with tracks, teams, sponsors, OEMs, and promoters to tell the stories of the racers, the engineers, and the dreamers who strive to go further and faster. Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of the fastest, safest, and easiest way to introduce children to the world of riding on two wheels.

ShugoTanaka

The Tanaka family is traveling over 500 miles to race in the first Strider Cup race of the season!

The first Strider Cup entrants for the Lincoln, NE, race on June 11 are 4-year-old Shugo Tanaka (pictured at left) and his 2-year-old brother Moriya, signed up by their dad Mitsuo. The Tanaka family moved to the U.S. from Japan last fall and live in Wisconsin, where Mitsuo works as a mechanical engineer in Watertown.

Mitsuo first heard about Strider Bikes a few years ago and said, “Strider is popular in Japan. Many races of Strider Bikes were held near my house in Japan. Many kids are involved with the Strider team in Japan.”

Both boys started on Strider Bikes at two years old. While Shugo is a veteran with seven races under his belt, the Lincoln race will be Moriya’s first Strider competition. The family didn’t make it to the 2015 Strider World Championship last year in Rapid City, SD, but are planning to go to San Francisco this year for the 2016 Strider Cup World Championship on July 29-30.

When asked what the boys like most about their Strider Bikes, Mitsuo replied, “Speeding.” We’re not surprised.

We can’t wait to see their smiles at the Lincoln Strider Cup race on June 11!
