Strider bike giveaway




I’ll have to admit the day this arrived in the mail my two year old did.not.nap. :-)

He finally had his very first bike! In my opinion, the only choice where first bikes are concerned!
It was hard for him to contain his excitement! Let alone SLEEP!

If you are not familiar with the Strider PREbikes I’m sure you’ll notice right away that it has no peddles. Which is definitely not an accident. This bike has EVERYTHING you want in a first bike… even some things you probably didn’t know you wanted! :-)

Want to see them live? Strider Bikes IN ACTION! Take some time to watch those video clips, this bike isn’t just for little kids. As they grow, they can learn to do some pretty neat tricks!

We recently took our Strider bike on a family camping trip. (It packs very small by loosening the handle bars to lay flat with the bike and no peddles sticking out to get in the way!) Plenty of open spaces provided many opportunities to practice for Mr A and a few of his cousins! An older cousin (5 yrs) who has been riding a bike with training wheels spent some time practicing on the Strider bike. It was neat to see the light go on for him and get the hang of leaning into the turns while balancing. I’m sure his training wheels will be coming off very soon!


I’m all about getting back to doing things naturally. Everything from eating organic locally grown food to home-birthing, cloth diapering and raising our children in a home free of chemicals. The Strider bike fits right in with this mentality. Learning to ride a traditional two wheeler with “training wheels” is only delaying their chances of learning to ride a two wheeled bike. Not to mention, the greater chance of them getting injured when they eventually do get their training wheels removed and finally have the opportunity to learn to balance on a bike. Babies have to begin working on balance from day one to learn to sit, crawl and walk. If a baby a few months old can learn to balance to sit, then a toddler does not need training wheels to learn to read a bike. Strider gives them the chance to learn balance and coordination without worrying about peddling.


A few winning points in my book…
-light, very light! (He can easily carry it.)
-tires are puncture-proof, EVA polymer tires. (NO flat tires!)
-the seat goes low… much lower than similar bikes out on the market. (11in. from the ground.)
-saves you money on buying unnecessary tricycles or training wheel bikes. (saving money? ALWAYS in the budget.)
-complete stability. From their first time on a Strider bike, they are confident with both feet on the ground.
-nothing to get them injured! (no parts that stick out to get cut or scraped on!)



Now it’s YOUR chance! Here’s how to win your very own…

In case you were wondering, Strider is not paying me to say these nice things about them, but they did provide my two-year-old with a bike so I could review it, and they’re the ones giving some lucky person this bike!

  • Sela

    I've been eying these for awhile, this one looks great!
    I would probably choose yellow so my daughter could use it now and my son could use it later (don't think dad would like his son riding a purple bike in the future) 😉
