What a day of fast and furious Strider Cup balance bike racing!
Toddlers from as young as 18 months and some still in nappies were to experience being the first riders ever on the brand NEW permanent Strider Cup Track in the UK and Ireland at Birmingham Bike Park.
Little legs flew past over the custom built mini Strider BMX track, perfectly designed around Strider Racing. The 4 year and over category was fast and furious and a real fight for the win. We ended up with just over 80 registered racers! Happy, smiling faces received medals with trophies for the champions in the 2 and under, 3, 4 & over classes. What a wonderful day of making new friends, riding, and racing!
Here is what Helen Rickards, mum to Madeleine and Oscar had to say
"We've just experienced our second strider cup race at Birmingham, these events are like nothing I've ever seen before. Parents coming together from all over the uk to join together and share what all our toddlers love, strider bike riding.
The races are extremely well run and gives our children the opportunity to gain some valuable lessons and skills, some get the concept at an extremely young age and the atmosphere is full of warmth and encouragement even in torrential rain. I can't believe these opportunities exist for my 2 year old twins and we are so thrilled to be a part of it."
Don't forget, everyone who participated is welcome to attend the Strider Cup World Championships in Salt Lake City, Utah July 21st and July 22nd. We know some of you are already making plans. Be sure to book your hotel soon!
A huge thank you to all the racers, their families, and to our Title sponsor, Wright Hassall, for sponsoring the trophies. A big thanks also to Birmingham Bike Park employees and their children for helping us and hosting the event. Moonscape tracks for creating the International Standard of Strider Balance Bike tracks - if you want a track built, even in your own back garden, get in touch with Mark.
We had a wonderful time with you Birmingham. Thank you for the hospitality!
