STRIDER™ balance bikes are industry-leading training bikes that help children as young as 18 months learn to ride on two wheels. STRIDER balance bikes focus on the fundamentals of balancing, leaning, and steering without the distractions and complications of pedals or training wheels.

Strider Bikes are the #1 selling balance bike for toddlers because of the passion behind the brand. That’s why we host events for these young riders all around the world. Strider Bike events and races are fun, positive experiences for the entire family that will entertain your toddler and give them the opportunity to be part of a growing community of riding enthusiasts! They will be making new friends while they become more proficient at balancing, riding and racing against children their own age. And you get to support and cheer them on! Ready to find an event near you? First try checking our Strider Events Calendar. None of these events require previous racing experience. Strider Adventure Zone Ride and Play areas are a perfect, low-key place to take your toddler so they can practice, discover, and play. Don’t miss the opportunity for your child to gain both a sense of pride and self confidence in a matter of hours.

So let’s get started! Choose your event, get registered, make sure your child has a helmet, begin practicing, and we'll see you on race day! Stride On!
