Strider World Cup Sprints To Quad Cities For USA BMX Quad City Nationals

Balance Bike Racing Arrives In The Quad Cities At East Moline BMX July 20th

Rapid City, SD (July 8, 2013) — Strider Sports International, developer of the patented STRIDER™ No-Pedal Balance Bikes, is bringing the Strider World Cup™ to East Moline, Illinois for the USA BMX Quad City Nationals July 20th at East Moline BMX, 1900 Avenue of the Cities, East Moline, IL 61265.

The season-long Strider World Cup series gives toddlers ages two to five the chance for friendly competition at events across the country. No prior experience needed. The Strider World Cup races are perfect for both beginners and more experienced riders alike.

The Strider World Cup race will drop the gate at 11:15am on Saturday, with registration from 7:30 to 9:30am. The toddlers ride their balance bikes on a small portion of the same track being used for the USA BMX Quad City Nationals — just enough to give them the joy of the real thing.

The weekend of racing will be streamed live online at http://new.livestream.com/.

USA BMX Strider memberships are available for $25. The membership includes the racer's first Strider World Cup race and a USA BMX membership card. Participating in a race at any USA BMX National will qualify the racer for the Strider World Championship this fall in Sarasota, Florida.

Strider Sports founder and CEO Ryan McFarland says, "At Strider Sports we are committed to supporting a fun, safe, and healthy lifestyle through bicycling. Our partnership with USA BMX has introduced hundreds of children to bicycling at a younger age than ever before. We can't wait to continue spreading the love of cycling that will keep them fit and healthy for years to come."
