“We love inspiring kids to ride,” adds the visionary balance bike maker, McFarland. “Strider’s mission is to simplify a bike to its essence, eliminate any fear of riding and instill confidence in the rider.” Boil it down to the essentials, and isn’t riding fearlessly and confidently into the future the lifetime goal of any biker?
“Strider is changing the paradigm of how kids learn to ride and setting the new standard for how young children explore the world on two wheels and ultimately make their own history,” says McFarland. “To that end, we recently formed a non-profit, the Strider Education Foundation, whose mission is to inspire new riders of all abilities to a life of two-wheeled adventures for years to come. Someday, these kids may be future inductees into the Sturgis Museum’s Hall of Fame.”
