When Karen Wood of Strider Balance Bike UK, met Richard Moore one of the brothers behind Source BMX, Europe's largest BMX shop, it was pretty apparent from the outset both shared the same can do attitude. Both had the same vision; that kids can ride at any age given the right bike, in the right venue with encouragement by older riders.
So Rich went off to build Source Park, a huge underground Skatepark in an old Victorian Swimming pool, and Karen built a team of 2 year old Strider Riders that just love to ride their balance bike.
On the 24th June, 2017, Source Park held a Birthday party to celebrate Strider's 10th Birthday and the launch of Source Strider lessons.
This is what happened.
There was also cake, which got eaten too quick for photo and a whole heap of fun stuff going on...
Source BMX and Strider are both owned and run by riders so it was a no brainer to work together with Source becoming the largest Strider dealer in the UK and have turned many a toddler into a rider. Strider sell only through passionate people that put kids on bikes, therefore ensuring parents get accurate and honest advice and brilliant customer service. A perfect match.
So Strider Riders in Hastings get down to Source Strider lessons - Every Monday from 12.30 to 1.30 come rain or shine for expert tuition and lots of fun..
