Winner of the Millionth STRIDER® Bike to Attend Strider World Championship Race
in Rapid City, SD, August 28-29, 2015

Rapid City, SD (February 26, 2015) – Strider Sports Intl., Inc., the world’s premier manufacturer and marketer of children’s no-pedal balance bikes, announced today the sale of its one millionth STRIDER Bike. To celebrate the milestone, the company inserted a Golden Ticket into the STRIDER Pro bike shipped to 11-month-old Lyra Spencer and her father Jaxum and family of Coos Bay, Oregon.

The Golden Ticket gives the Spencer family a $1,000 travel voucher, a free three-night hotel stay, and a free race registration for the pinnacle Strider Racing event, the Strider World Championship Race, to be held in Rapid City, SD August 28-29, 2015.


“We purchased this bike for our daughter’s first birthday,” said Jaxum. “She has fearlessly survived a life-threatening illness and we want to share with her all of the beautiful things that life has to offer. We know that in no time she will be able to ride at our summer family reunion, and we thank you, Strider, for giving us great new memories.”

“One million bikes! What a long way we’ve come since I built that first bike in my garage for my son, nearly 10 years ago, said Ryan McFarland, CEO of Strider Sports International. “I have a terrific staff, passionate about getting kids outside and riding bikes, and we’ve got a great network of enthusiastic distributors, dealers, and parents who’ve helped us reach this milestone. I can’t think of a more fitting recipient for this special bike than little Lyra.”
