Toddlers as young as 18 months to race and enjoy family-friendly activities at event

Rapid City, SD (June 7, 2016) — Strider Bikes, the world’s leading manufacturer and marketer of children’s no-pedal balance bikes, is returning to Pioneer Park for its 2016 Strider Cup Series with the Strider Cup Race presented by Intermountain LDS Hospital on June 25 in Salt Lake City. 

The June 25 race is the second of three events in the national Strider Cup racing series, in which toddlers as young as 18 months old put their Strider Bike skills to the test. These family-friendly races also feature a free Strider Adventure Zone play area with games and Strider Bikes to test ride.

“Strider Bikes build up so much confidence and helped my boys be independent at a young age,” said Justin Hewett, of Draper, Utah. His 4-year-old son, Hawk, competed in 2015 and since then has quickly and easily transitioned to a pedal bike. He still loves his Strider Bike and is competing this year. His 2-year-old brother, Lincoln, will be racing for the first time. “We had such a great experience at the Strider race last year. My wife and I were so impressed, it totally exceeded our expectations!”

The event includes races for 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-year-olds. The registration fee is $25 online before June 21 or $35 on-site. Racers will receive a Strider jersey, number plate for their bike and a goodie bag valued at more than $50 with their registration Pre-registration is open at http://www.striderbikes.com/saltlakecity

A typical Strider race scene features hundreds of excited and proud young parents and grandparents eagerly encouraging their young racers while ringing bright yellow cowbells as the starting gate drops. Toddlers, some still in diapers, lean forward, kick their short legs, and embark upon their 600-foot plus journey over obstacles such as dirt mounds and wooden ramps. All racers are treated to a celebratory podium award ceremony immediately following their main race, where they will receive either a trophy or a medal and pose for the cheering crowd. 

On May 25, Stoel Rives LLC teamed up with Strider to give away 120 Strider Bikes to local youth, including 50 bikes to the Lolie Eccles Early Education Center: Childcare, Preschool & Kindergarten, part of YWCA Utah, and another 50 to the Wasatch Christian Early Learning Center. Several of those recipients are expected to participate in the June 25 Strider Cup Race.

The Strider Cup events also include races for athletes with special needs in conjunction with the Special Olympics program in each city. In Salt Lake City, 24 Special Olympics athletes received Strider Bikes and are learning to ride for the June 25 race. These athletes will race the 12” models, as well as Strider’s new, larger 16” and 20” balance bikes, which the company launched in 2014 specifically for the special needs community. Strider has waived the registration fee for riders with special needs.

The other two Strider Cup races will be held June 11 in Lincoln, Nebraska and July 9 in Spokane, WA. Participating in any of these events automatically qualifies the rider for the Strider Cup World Championship, July 29-30 at Pier 35 in San Francisco, California. The Strider event page, http://www.striderbikes.com/events has more information on all of the races.

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!

Over 270 STRIDER Riders came out for the 2015 STRIDER World Championship at Main Street Square in Rapid City, SD! The 5th annual race had participants from Canada, China, Ecuador, Japan, Slovakia, and all over the US. It's always fun to see international friendships rekindled as previous champions return to reclaim their title in the next age bracket. We also had a number of racers who had participated in one of the four 2015 STRIDER Championship Series races held in Florida, California, Pennsylvania, and Utah.

The weekend was full of family focused events and everyone had a great time despite high temperatures.

Friday night was a chance to get to know the lay out of the track and for last chance qualifiers. We capped Friday night off with the STRIDER Corporate Challenge! Eight local businesses had a blast racing the track in a relay. The best part? We raised $1,000 for Youth & Family Services and $1,000 for Black Hills Works.

Saturday was RACE DAY! Some riders were fast, some were slow, but smiles were out in abundance! It was another hot one and many of the racers took advantage of the water hazard for a quick (sometimes mid-race) cool-down! Abbey Road (a Beatles cover band) played in Main Street Square at 7pm. Many of the STRIDER Riders stayed to get rid of even more energy through some pretty amazing dancing skills.

Check out the social media links at the bottom of the page to make sure you don't miss the2016  STRIDER Championship Series dates and locations when they're announced! You should also head over to our Flickr Page to see some amazing photos of all the little racers:

Finallya huge shout out to all the families and STRIDER Riders that came out!

We also had a ton of support from some amazing sponsors: FedEx, Rapid City CVB, Scull Construction, Courtesy Subaru, Honey Stinger, Black Hills & Badlands, KIND Snacks, SCheels, Western Dakota Insurors, Ketel Thorstenson, Black Hills Power, Black Hills Urgent Care, Security First Bank, and Vast Broadband.

See you next year!

What a fun day of STRIDER Championship Series Racing at the Station Square on June 6th; new friends were made, challenges were overcome, and smiles were abundant!

A big shout out goes to all the folks who participated and helped out in the recent race in Pittsburgh, PA! What a great day! Fabulous weather, great venue and tons of enthusiasm from everybody involved.

All of the STRIDER HQ staff that went out to Pittsburgh were amazed at the response and the great vibes that we got from everybody that we met. What a cool city too, with beautiful bike paths, a great bike community, and a neat bike rental system.

Also a big thanks to the fine folks at the Wheel Mill Bike Park for letting us do packet pickup there! While Taylor Swift didn’t make it over to see us on Saturday we still
rocked Station Square! : )

Another big shout out to FedEx for sponsoring the race in Pittsburgh and the upcoming race in Salt Lake City! A special thanks to KIND Snacks and Honey Stinger for the goodies in the swag bags!
