Hesperia BMX in California has the newest STRIDER specific course in the USA BMX world. If you're in the area and you haven't checked out the STRIDER action at Hesperia BMX go see waht it's all about! 

Their practice/race schedule can be found on our website and more information on their track is below. Stride On! 

1. Hesperia BMX is located at 17501 Live Oak Street, Hesperia, CA 52345 and the track phone number is (760) 678-5792

2. The track operator is Dan Dalton and the track website is www.HesperiaBMX.com

Feeling Fuzzy

 

One of my favorite things about working Strider is the certain random things that give me warm fuzzies every single day. You know, that happy feeling you get when something makes your heart melt or you have a sense of pride so sudden that your body literally feels like its warming up and your guts are all gushie inside. (In a good way of course.) Maybe I’m over sensitive, I have heard that once or twice, a happy crier. It’s so annoying and embarrassing but I can’t help it. I have to bring an entire box of Kleenex to weddings and baptisms to sop up what I like to call my emotional allergies.

Let me share with you some things that make me fuzzy, and make me cry, (occasionally) and it’s all because of the amazing place I work. I am so lucky. 

Wellspring 2012

We are still a very new company, relatively speaking, but rapidly growing and expanding our team. On every job description the very last sentence is this: “Beneficial qualifications: Commitment to an active lifestyle and exercise.” This probably doesn’t give everyone warm fuzzies. But it means the world to me. It doesn’t say ‘You must be able to run a mile in 10 minutes or be able to perform 5 perfect pushups before being considered for this position.’ It says a commitment to be active; and this is contagious! The support we give each other to be healthy is incredible. Walks, rides, simply caring about the well being of one another makes me fuzzy. And I like it.

toh

Trophy over the head pictures. OH. MY. GOSH. I giggle and get a little teary eyed every single time I see one of these. These toddlers are so tiny! And they are active, and their parents are rad. They are well on their way to having an active lifestyle forever because it’s fun, and they are so proud, and they started early. Plus their little arms are so short still and they just barely reach to the tops of their little heads and it’s ADORABLE. That too.

Grandmas kid

Grandmas. I answer the phone here a lot and even when I am crazy busy and have 5 million things to do I will never rush a Grandma telling me about how awesome her grandchild is. Because I know she’s right, that kid is awesome, and I want to hear all about it.

I could make this list a mile long, but I won’t. I want to hear all about your Strider warm fuzzies. Leave a comment! I won’t be mad if you make me cry today. It’s just emotional allergies.

STRIDER World Cup Racing Arrives In Tampa/St. Petersburg At Oldsmar BMX March 9th


Rapid City, SD (February 25, 2013) — Strider Sports International, developer of the patented STRIDER™ No-Pedal Balance Bikes, is bringing the Strider World Cup™ to Oldsmar, Florida for the USA BMX Gator Nationals March 9th at 3120 Tampa Road, Oldsmar, FL 34677. Detailed Times and Map can be found in our calendar.

The season-long Strider World Cup series gives toddlers ages two to five the chance for friendly competition at events across the country. No prior experience needed. The Strider World Cup races are perfect for both beginners and more experienced riders alike.

The Strider World Cup race will drop the gate at 11:15am on Saturday, with registration from 7:30 to 9:30am. The whole family can enjoy the Strider experience at the Adventure Zone from 9am to 5pm Friday and Saturday. Toddlers can test ride their favorite Strider on the obstacle course while playing, learning, and socializing with peers on two wheels.

The toddlers ride their balance bikes on a small portion of the same track being used for the USA BMX Gator Nationals and the UCI Pro Series race featuring the fastest BMX racers in the world. Be sure to get a spot on the fence to see many of the same racers who participated in last summer’s London Olympics.

USA BMX Strider memberships are available for $25. The membership includes the racer’s first Strider World Cup race and a USA BMX membership card. Participating in a race at any USA BMX National will qualify the racer for the Strider World Championship this fall in Sarasota, Florida.

Strider Sports founder and CEO Ryan McFarland says, “At Strider Sports we are committed to supporting a fun, safe, and healthy lifestyle through bicycling. Our partnership with USA BMX has introduced hundreds of children to bicycling at a younger age than ever before. We can’t wait to continue spreading the love of cycling that will keep them fit and healthy for years to come.”

Results Are In From The Winter Nationals!

It was a hot time in Phoenix this last weekend. If you were there hopefully you had a lot of sunscreen slathered on and a cool spot to relax during your down time. Even with temperatures peaking at just over 100 degrees on Saturday there was a good turn out of STRIDER and BMX racers. The Cajun Nationals this weekend (4/27-4/29) in Monroe, LA will be indoors so the heat shouldn't play as much of a role.

Photos courtesy of MJT Designs! To purchase high res copies of your child racing please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Check out the results and some photos, then head over to Strider Life to share your photos, stories and video from the Winter Nationals.
