Strider Brings Fun for Kids to Tribeca Family Festival
Strider Adventure Zone to Teach Riding Skills to Kids 2 to 5 Years Old
Rapid City, SD (April 19, 2016) — They aren’t very big, but they are fast, mighty, and a force to be reckoned with: toddler-aged Strider® Bike riders. Come see for yourself as kids as young as 18 months old take to the streets to learn to ride a bike and have fun at the Tribeca Family Festival Street Fair Saturday, April 23rd in Tribeca, NY. Thanks to Strider, the leader in no-pedal balance bikes and its famous Strider Adventure Zone, parents and spectators attending the festival can introduce the youngest members of the family to the fun of riding a bike – for free.
Ideal for toddlers and kids up to age five, the Strider Adventure Zone is a free, safe, friendly, and fun environment where young riders of all abilities can take a spin around the custom-designed race course of ramps and obstacles. Strider Bikes help children develop vital balance and coordination skills needed to ride on two wheels, while the Adventure Zone course allows riders of all abilities to take their time in getting comfortable on a bike as they socialize, play, and show off to their parents. Ryan McFarland, Strider Bike Inventor and CEO, and other members of Team Strider will be on site for the day-long festival. McFarland notes, “At Strider we are thrilled to be participating with the Tribeca Film Festival for the second year in a row. We love riding bikes and inspiring kids to ride. Tribeca is the perfect place for kids to learn balance and riding while having fun at such an early age.”
A fun event for the entire family, the 2016 Tribeca Family Festival Street Fair takes place April 23. The Free Strider Adventure Zone will be open Saturday, April 23 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
