CONTEST OVER! THANKS TO ALL WHO ENTERED!! CONGRATS TO MARCI, COMMENT #70!!!
I had the opportunity to review one of the Strider Running Bikes. They are quite different from the “normal” everyday bike, that is for sure! When we received it, my son was VERY excited, what little child would not be? My husband was home, so we took it out of the box and my husband adjusted the seat to my sons height. It was night time, so we let our son just kind of troll around the house on it. But the next day is where the fun came in! We received the Strider Running Bike in Orange.
It was a beautiful day outside and we went outside and my son was very unsure of this thing 🙂 He kept saying, but it does not have pedals! I can’t do it, it is broken, hahaha! I had to convince him that that is how it is suppose to be! So, finally, after a bit more coaxing, he decided to go down our gravel driveway. Probably not the best place to take this for a spin on the first try, because he fell 🙁 But he got right back up and tried again (that’s my boy!) He ended up having lots of fun on this bike. Though he still tells me we need to get pedals on it, he really likes it.
Don’t mind the helmet, that is not his, LOL!
And just because she was feeling left out (by the way, the seat can be adjusted for her too!)
What exactly is the Strider Bike? (taken off their site):
As a parent of two boys, Ryan McFarland became frustrated with the drawbacks of traditional beginner’s bikes.
“Tricycle tip-overs” and “training-wheel wobbles” create a fear, hesitancy, and dislike of bike riding. And, after tinkering with several ideas, the answer hit Ryan: Balance and coordination should be taught before pedaling.
Yes, the traditional methods of learning to ride a bike have it backwards. Tricycles and training wheels place too much of the focus on learning to pedal.
Bike riding becomes a breeze when you teach your child balance and coordination before pedaling.
The Strider™ running bike has been meticulously designed to teach your child balance and coordination. From its lightweight design to its center of gravity and low seat height, the Strider™ is a bike your child can easily control. And most importantly, the Strider™ is a bike that will develop glittering confidence and a lifelong love for bicycling. Dare we say it will become your child’s favorite toy?
