it’s funny how often we get stopped by people so that they can ask about the kids and their bikes. i’m not sure if it is because the bikes seem different since they have no pedals or if they stop us because they are amazed at the crazy bike handling skills alexa and hayden have… it may be a combo of both.
the bikes are made by a company called strider bikes. they are balance bikes, meaning they have no pedals or training wheels. the purpose is to teach kids balance first… and let me tell you, they work brilliantly! hayden has better balance than any of us. he can take off on the bike and prop his heels up on the inside of the bike and just coast. it is pretty incredible! we can’t say enough about these bikes! hayden started riding his when he was just under 2 years old and alexa had just turned 3. if you are thinking about bikes as gifts for christmas, these come highly recommended from us! check them out!
