4. STRIDER race/practice fee? No fees for non-point races, $5 race fee for point races. Practice is free and always open!

5. Why did you build a STRIDER track? So the younger riders would have an activity at the races. The regular track is very long and developed so this gives the toddlers an alternative area to develop skills and not be in danger of not being seen by the older riders.

6. The track was completed in 2010 and took about a 1/2 day to build. Unsure what the costs were because it was built at the same time as the new main track.

7. Space and Materials? Plot Size: 40 x 150, Yards of dirt: 40

8. Track Layout? Total course length: 200 feet, Starting hill width: 10 ft (on the list to be widened), Straightaway width: 12 feet. The track consists of rollers, 3 jumps (3-4 ft high), and 1 berm at the turn around.

9. Special Features: It sits within the main track

10. Overall Experience: The STRIDER program seems to be growing more and more every year. We are developing new riders and the 5 novie class has been expanded as riders have moved up.

11. Special Events: Olympic Day, Race for Life, Redline Cup Qualifier, State Championship Qualifier

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!

Your little STRIDER rider wants to ride + your local USA BMX track wants to grow their program = Win/Win!

Getting involved riding/racing BMX as a family is a great way to spend time together while honing your 2 wheeled skills. Luckily, there are tracks all over the country! You can start as early as the 2 and under STRIDER class and the  oldest current USA BMX member is in his 70's! 

STRIDERville is lucky to have two great bmx tracks: Box Elder BMX and Rapid City BMX

Here is a STRIDER video from Box Elder BMX. Go and look for your nearest track on the USA BMX website and go have some fun.

Have a great Saturday...now get out and ride!

Balance Bike Toddler Athletes Compete in Rapid City, SD

Family Fun Day Activities for All Bike Enthusiast Families

Rapid City, S. D.  June 17, 2013  ­ These days, even preschoolers can be national race champions. On Saturday July 13, Strider Sports Intl., Inc., is throwing down the gauntlet to all fun loving toddlers and their bike enthusiast families by hosting the first ever STRIDER U.S. Championship balance bike race!

This national event will see STRIDER’s famous no-pedal bike race course take over Rapid City’s Main Street Square as toddlers face off at the start line to show their skills on two wheels. The young athletes will get the chance to showcase their ability to balance, handle their STRIDER No- Pedal balance bikes, and compete like real cyclists on the custom designed racecourse.

The event also includes fun activities for the entire family with the racing action starting at 10:00am for two years and under. Three year olds compete at 11:00am, with four year olds at 1:00pm and five year olds closing down the racing at 2:00pm in the afternoon. The U.S. Championship is a qualifying event for the 3rd Annual STRIDER World Championshiptaking place in Sarasota, FL October 11-13, 2013.  

“There’s absolutely nothing more amazing than watching toddlers lined up on their STRIDER bikes like they’re in the Olympics racing for gold,” says Strider Founder and CEO, Ryan McFarland. “And the race course itself is going to be incredibly fun, combining all of the best parts of what we’ve learned from holding STRIDER races around the world. The U.S. Championship event is just one part of our global movement to bring early childhood riding skills to young children everywhere” , says McFarland.

The top 8 finishers will get trophies in a true podium ceremony, and all participants will receive a medal. Each registered STRIDER rider will also receive a Strider backpack and a Strider race jersey.   Online registration is open until Friday, July 9 at 12:00 p.m. (MST) and costs $15 per rider. Same day registration will begin at 9 am. Parents should register racers at least 30 minutes prior to race start time.

Located in the Black Hills of South Dakota and just 30 minutes from the Mt. Rushmore National Monument, the STRIDER US Championship also makes a great stop for any family on their summer vacation.
