Strider Bikes to host Strider Cup two-wheel race for kids

Strider Bikes will host The Strider Cup, an epic two-wheel kid race, on September 14. Kids from across the globe will be able to show off their balance bike skills and race in downtown Rapid City, South Dakota. The annual event features races for children of all skill levels from ages two to six and is on the doorstep of incredible sites like Mount Rushmore.

The Sprint Race for two-, three-, and four-year-old age classes, toddlers – some still in diapers – will allow kids to take over the racetrack with their Strider bikes in balance mode. It’s an amazing opportunity to enjoy the thrill of racing and build self-confidence as families roar for their two-wheeling racers. The Adventure-Cross Stage Race is the ultimate race for four-, five-, and six-year-olds with boundless energy to run, stride, and pedal through an epic course. The stage races are for all 14x riders who would rather go over rocks and through puddles than around them! Each stage of this race presents new challenges and exciting obstacles, including running, riding in balance mode, involving parents and guardians at a pit stop, and pedaling the final lap to the finish line.
