Putting more kids on bikes

Teaching kids to ride on two-wheels, Strider held the 2019 Strider Snow Cup, on Buck Hill in Burnsville, MN. Youngsters, ages two to five, took to the bunny hill slopes on their Strider 12 Bikes, outfitted with snow ski accessories. It was a perfect, fun-filled, true north, weather day for the kids.

Dubbed as the “Toddler Tour de France” by The Wall Street Journal and ESPN. Wave after wave of toddlers made their way down the course.

The Strider Snow Cup is an extension of the family-friendly events held in the summer months.  This March 2nd event allowed young, two-wheeling tots a much different climate to ride in.  This was the first Strider Snow Cup Race in the U.S.A., since 2013.

Using the Strider Snow Ski accessory, a Strider 12 Balance Bike can be converted for use in the snow. This makes riding year-round in any climate a reality.
