We’d like to welcome our newest sponsor, Calgary Strider!
It’s a revolution!
Perhaps you haven’t heard about one of these amazing little bikes yet but chances are you’ve seen one and just didn’t notice that something was missing. NO PEDALS. NO BRAKES. The no pedal PREbike turns tradition on its head. Simply put, balance first, pedal later.
The PREbike is revolutionizing the way kids learn to ride a bike. The Strider ™ PREbike teaches balance, coordination and control and because your child is in charge of the speed and has his or her feet firmly planted on the ground it takes the fear out of riding and replaces it with sheer confidence. And, best of all they will NEVER need training wheels.
The Strider ™ PREbike weighs in at less than 7lbs, and is free from sprockets, gears and pedals that can often injure young children. The seat can be adjusted to 11 inches from the ground which allows children as young as 18 months to ride a bike “like the big kids”. Within a short period of time your child will sit, propel the bike with his or her feet and gradually begin to glide and balance. They stop, much like they do running or walking, by simply putting their feet down and well, stop. Most kids between the ages of 2 and 4 cannot pedal, much less brake but they can walk, run and yes, even stop on a dime.
The Strider ™ PREbike has fully integrated Launch Pads ™ which are strategically placed where the pedals would normally be. This allows your child more freedom and control to manouevre the bike over curbs, up hills, and on almost any kind of “off road” terrain.
The Strider™ PREbike is truly a revolutionary way to learn to ride a bike and the best toy you’ll ever buy your young child!
