Strider Bikes, the world’s leader in teaching young children to ride and rip on two wheels, has announced Buck Hill in Burnsville, Minnesota, will host the 2019 Strider Snow Cup on March 2. Toddlers ages 5 and under will shred the bunny slopes on their Strider 12 Bikes outfitted with the Strider Snow Ski accessory for a day of snow-filled fun.
The Wall Street Journal, ESPN and Bleacher Report shared news about the Strider Cup and Strider Cup World Championship races, dubbing the spectacle the “Toddler Tour de France.” The Strider Snow Cup is an extension of these family-friendly events, but with a much different climate for two-wheeling toddler prodigies to ride in.
After numerous successful Strider Snow Cup events held across the globe, including Russia, Japan and the United Kingdom, the Strider Snow Cup at Buck Hill marks the first Strider Snow Cup in the United States since 2013.
Using the Strider Snow Ski accessory, a Strider 12 Balance Bike can be converted for use in the snow, making riding year-round in any climate a reality.
Snow Cup attendees can expect an atmosphere of fun and encouragement as toddlers will put their Strider skills to the test, making for unforgettable video and photos.
Pre-registration for the Strider Snow Cup is required. Each child that registers receives a Strider Snow Cup bib, Strider goodie bag valued at over $50, and a single-day use lift ticket to Buck Hill for their parent or guardian ($45 value). Registration is $35.82 and now open at www.StriderBikes.com/BuckHill.
The Strider Snow Cup will be the first Strider Cup Race of 2019 in the United States. Once the snow melts, Strider will continue the warm-weather Strider Cup races at four US locations including:
