What a day of balance bike racing! 90 children racing their hearts out, smiles abundant and not even torrential rain dampened their spirits.
The new permanent Strider Track at Birmingham Bike Park was a massive hit with the 2 years and 5 years alike. We are proud to support this gift to the next generation where kids can learn to ride, learn to corner and race their balance bike all year round. Don't forget to go down and practice every Saturday morning! There are Strider lessons and Strider Progression onto pedals under the eye of qualified instructors.
The next Strider Race is at the HSBC British Downhill Race on 20th August, with a Strider pump track set up for the 19th. This race is consists of a practice run in the morning with the important timed individual race in front of massive crowds and a trip onto the podium. Why not come and make a weekend of it, with rock up and camp for just £10 a family from Friday 18th August and witness some of the world's top MTB riders in action. This truly inspirational event must be booked.
The next Strider Cup sees us return to the Cyclopark, Gravesend in Kent on the 10th September, 2017. Places are available but will sell out.
We hope you enjoy our balance bike racing video. If you have footage and pictures of your own please share them in the Strider Racing Facebook Group for the enjoyment of all.
Karen, and the team at Birmingham Bike Park.
