Are you the parent of a toddler or child, and he or she loves to ride their Strider Bike? Then give them a taste of competition in the 2017 Strider Cup World Championship, coming to Salt Lake City this July. Sign ups have begun for this annual event where kids can put their balance bike skills to the test in a fun and supportive environment. This is a great way to generate even more excitement and a love for riding bikes in your child.
The Strider Cup World Championship takes places July 21-22 at the Gallivan Center in downtown Salt Lake City. Pre-registration is open now online and is the best way to register – there will be no race-day registration.
The Strider Cup race series caters directly to children between 2 and 5 years old who want to show off their riding skills and compete in a friendly atmosphere against other Strider riders. Children of all sizes and skill levels are welcome to participate. Strider No-Pedal Balance Bikes are developed for both learning the ropes of riding and honing advanced skills in racing.
The series-ending Strider Cup World Championship is expected to have over 400 toddler-aged racers from around the world to compete at this pinnacle event. There will be races for 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-year olds. Registration fee is $25. Racers will receive a Strider goodie bag valued at more than $50 with their registration.
A typical Strider race scene features excited and proud young parents and grandparents eagerly encouraging their young racers as bright yellow cowbells are rung and the starting gate drops. Toddlers, some still in diapers, lean forward, kick their short legs, and embark upon their 600-foot plus journey over obstacles from dirt mounds to wooden ramps. All racers are treated to a celebratory podium award ceremony immediately following their main race, where they will receive either a trophy or a medal and pose for the crowd of proud parents and spectators.
