The Strider Snow Cup has been dubbed the “Toddler Tour de France” by the Wall Street Journal, ESPN and others. A world leader in teaching young children to ride and rip on two wheels, Strider Bike has announced Buck Hill, in Burnsville, Minnesota, will host the Snow Cup on March 2nd. Toddlers ages five and under will shred the bunny slopes on their Strider 12 Bikes outfitted with the Strider Snow Ski accessory for a day of snow-filled fun. This family-friendly Snow Cup program is an extension to Striders events, offering a much different climate for two-wheeling toddlers to ride in.
