Strider Bike - Proud Headline Sponsor of the 11th National What's On 4 Kids strider bikeAwards 2017

Where can you find toddlers wearing Mickey Mouse helmets whilst sucking dummies on a start line for a bike race? Strider® Balance Bike Events…

Strider Balance Bikes are the result of 10 years of development, manufacturing improvements, riding, observation, testing, and even racing. When you purchase a Strider balance bike, you buy into the global 'club' that is Team Strider; you become one of the early adopters that are starting a revolution of how kids learn to ride and setting the new standard for how young children explore the world on two wheels.

At Strider we love riding bikes and we love inspiring kids to ride. Our mission is to build lightweight, efficient, all-terrain bikes that build two wheeled balance, confidence and coordination in young children, without ever needing stabilisers. We take this mission very seriously and go one “stride” further by hosting events across the world that encourage riding and friendly competition from 18 months, for riders of all abilities, and a great day out for families. All Strider Bike purchases include a FREE Race entry.

Children can start on a Strider Balance Bike from 18 months, or on their 1st birthday if you buy the Rocker accessory (Think rocking horse but a bike instead). Simply put we are the original metal balance bike; the lightest, have the lowest seat position, adjust to the highest seat position to last beyond a child’s 5th birthday and all delivered free with excellent customer service. We also work with Independent cycling coaches that deliver local Strider sessions, whereby your child can have fun with others and learn how to use their bike in a safe environment.strider bike rocker

Mind you why hear it from just us. The proof is what our parents think. Here is Jessica Lamb, proud mum to Eli and Ella.

“My son loves Strider Racing. After a few events Eli has built up friendships and Ella loves to give everyone a high 5 and is very proud of the little medals and gifts we get every so often and often goes to bed clutching them. I’ve had comments from his nursery teachers about how fit my children are. We go miles on our bikes, far further than walking or using buggies. I have been told my son is very good at helping other children to “have a go” and if they don’t win something he’s the first to say that you just need to keep trying and not give up. That originates from Strider. My youngest hasn’t needed a buggy since she was 14 months as she goes everywhere on her Strider. She already gets excited if I mention racing and even has learnt all her colours from the bike range. At 2 years old she can now ride a pedal bike, but still prefers her Strider as it is so light and easy for them to use.”

Whilst Strider have taught over 1.7 million toddlers to ride our 12” balance bike we also have a 16” and 20” for kids aged 6 -12 years and adults respectively; the perfect tool for those with special needs challenges, Autism or who just need a little help with learning to ride a bike for the first time. Organisations and charities can enquire about our benevolent grant fund.
