Learn to Ride!

A Strider ® No-Pedal Balance Bike is the perfect tool for learning to ride, teaching balance, and instilling riding skills in children.

Rethink the Definition of Riding
What defines riding? Does pedaling define riding? Downhill mountain bikers don’t pedal, road bike riders descending a highway don’t pedal, BMX riders in a halfpipe don’t pedal, and motorcyclists don’t pedal. They are all riding. So what do they all have in common? The ability to balance on two wheels and lean through turns—regardless of what put them in motion. For children, walking and running are the natural means of propulsion. The simplicity of Strider Bikes allows children to concentrate on the fundamental skills of balancing, leaning, and steering while propelling the bike in a natural way.

Evolition of a Strider Rider!

  • Be a cheerleader, not a coach: praise your child for any amount of time they spend on the Strider!
  • Let the child set the pace: some kids are cautious and that’s ok!
  • Support the child – NOT the bike!
  • The child must feel the bike tip sideways to learn how to keep it upright.
