STRIDER Is Coming Back to Laguna Seca!

Ultimate Experience for Future Cyclists…Mark Your Calendars for July 27th – 29th!

The Strider Adventure Zone will return to family friendly Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca during the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix on July 27 to 29. For budding young cyclists who love having fun with a competitive edge, Strider Adventure Zone will also host the Strider Cup race on Sunday, July 29 starting at 10:30am.

STRIDER no-pedal balance bikes help toddlers learn balance and coordination before pedaling, which develops confidence and bike handling skills. Children from 18 months to five years of age will have a chance to experience riding at the Strider Adventure Zone.

Parents can pre-register online for the Strider Cup race before Wednesday, July 25, or register onsite between 9 to 10 a.m. on Sunday (7/29) at the event. The first 50 pre-registrants of the Strider Cup will receive two Sunday general admissions tickets to Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix to watch and enjoy the excitement of professional motorcycle racing. The second 50 pre-registrants will receive one Sunday general admission ticket to the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix.

Strider Sports International CEO Ryan McFarland says, “At Strider, we love seeing children light up when they get that first taste of freedom, mobility, and adventure that comes from their first bike experience. We believe the experience they’ll have in the Strider Cup will fuel that budding passion for riding on two wheels.”

The Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix is part of an internationally renowned MotoGP event where the best motorcycle riders around the world compete for the MotoGP World Championship title. These daring riders provide heart-pumping action while attacking the course in close quarter and knee-dragging fashion. The sound, speed, cheers and action captivates even non-motorcycle fans.
