Strider Balance Bike Racing on the 6th June, 2015, saw children aged 18 months to 5 yrs racing their Strider Balance Bikes around the purpose built track at Birmingham BMX Race track, Perry Barr. Thanks to Suzanne at BMX Widow Photography for some fantastic images. If you find one of your child that you wish to save, simply click the image and you should then be able to right click to save.
A brilliant day was had by all! The track crew went home buzzing and the kids smiled all day. The only tears were when kids were told to stop racing. Everyone got cheered home, and all got a medal. As the UK moves more towards a culture that steers away from competition, with little competitive sport being played at school we can't understand why. Strider Racing allows the kids that are competitive to aim high and those that aren't simply have a great time riding their bikes with others whilst making new friends.
The next race is now ready to book at the Cyclopark in Kent, on Sunday 6th September, 2015 - Book now! We would love to welcome you to the Strider Racing family. For more details and to be able to connect up with other Strider parents why not join our Facebook group Strider Bike UK Championships.
For children aged 18 months and including the 5 yr olds, kids race in three heats before we take the highest points into the finals. That way even a "bad" heat doesn't cost them a chance of making it through. Mind you some kids didn't care if they were racing or not! They simply rode whilst grinning from ear to ear!
