RAPID CITY, S.D. (BRAIN) — Strider Bikes has announced dates and locations for its 2017 Strider Cup, a national Strider Bike racing series for toddlers and children. Small children will get a chance to put their Strider Balance Bike skills to the test at three stops next spring and summer, as well as the final worldwide event next July, the Strider Cup World Championship event.

The series caters directly to children between 2 and 5 years old. The events are:

· Saturday, May 6: Fort Worth, TX, at Sundance Square
· Saturday, May 27: Pittsburgh, PA, at Southside Works
· Saturday, June 10: Lincoln, NE, at Tower Square

The series-ending Strider Cup World Championship race will be held July 22 at Gallivan Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, where nearly 250 toddlers competed on the custom Strider track in 2016. Organizers are expecting over 400 toddler-aged racers from around the world at the 2017 event.

For the second year, Strider will host races for athletes with special needs at each of the events. These athletes will race Strider's 12-inch balance bike models, as well as the brand's new, 16-inch and 20-inch balance bikes, which the company launched in 2014 specifically for the special needs community.
