Strider Adventure-Cross at Strider Fest - Saturday, August 27, 2022

About this event

Strider Fest in Rapid City, South Dakota is a weekend packed with fun Strider activities.

For all the little riders with boundless energy who would rather go on a longer expedition, this ride is for you! Calling all kiddos who want to Run, Stride, and Pedal. The Strider Adventure-Cross is for all the 14x riders ages 4-7 years old and combines running, riding in balance bike mode, and pedaling all in one awesome race. This is a test of endurance and skill with a longer course that covers a wide variety of obstacles including tires, the noodle monster, the dragon, a tunnel, and Mount Scary Ramp! There are four stages in this dynamic race, one of which includes a pit stop where a guardian attaches the pedal kit to the 14x so the racer can pedal power through the finish line. An epic day for both racer and spectator, the Strider Adventure-Cross should be on the top of every rowdy toddler’s bucket list.

This Strider Adventure-Cross race is a unique Strider take on a Cyclocross race but with a few fun twists! 

This race is only for racers age 4-7 years old (on August 27th, 2022) on Strider 14x Sport bikes. The race is broken up into two different classes, the 4 and 5 year old class, and the 6 and 7 year old class. There will be two different classes but they will all race at the same time. No Strider 12" bikes are allowed due to how this particular race will be run.

Note: This is a separate and different registration from the "Strider Cup" races for toddlers on 12" Strider Bikes that will also be happening on the same day (August 27th) on the same course. This Strider Adventure-Cross race will be run immediately after the Strider Cup races. Please register if you would like to register for any of those races which have three different classes (2 Year Old Class, 3 Year Old Class and 4 Year Old Class) Click this link to register for the Strider Cup races: Strider Cup at Strider Fest 2022 Registration

Unlike some of our other races, this is a race of endurance over a longer period of time and skill a lot like a Cyclocross race!  It will be a somewhat difficult course so please be sure that your racer is up for this challenge.  

The format of this race will be the following:

  • Stage 1:  From the starting line the racer will run the coarse. (no bicycle)
  • Stage 2:  One parent or guardian will then hand off the bike (in balance bike mode - no pedals) to the racer to complete another lap.
  • Stage 3:  Next will be a Pit Stop where one parent will attach the pedal kit (Strider 14x Easy-Ride Pedal Kit) onto the bike.
  • Stage 4:  After the pedal kit attachment is completed by the parent or guardian the racer will continue on in pedal mode for another lap.

The course will have a wide variety obstacles and challenges where the racer may have to dismount and lift their Strider Bikes over something to be able to keep going. We are expecting this could take as long as 20 to 30 minutes to complete. There will be sections of the course that will be done in laps.

An explanation about the "Pit Stop"...  One parent or guardian will be assigned a particular area where the racer will come to after the balance bike mode portion of the race is done and that parent will then attach the pedal kit to the bike as fast as he/she can and then give the bike back to the racer so they can continue the race in pedal mode.  Please reference the rules for specific information as there are several issues that need to have compliance to stay within the structure of the race. Recommendation: Practice doing this before the race parents!

Our race will be on August 27th at Main Street Square (512 Main Street) in downtown Rapid City.  We will have the tentative following schedule:

  • 8:00 am - 2:00 pm : Packet Pickup and Check-in.
  • 2:50 pm  - 3:00 pm : Rider's Meeting and course walk through for all racers.
  • 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm : Strider Adventure-Cross Race Race and Awards.

We will only be having one race and registrations will be limited to the first 10 registrants in each class (20 total).  

All registrations will have to be made online prior to August 26th at 7:00pm (Mountain Time).  There will be no registrations after that time, none on race day or after registration has been capped at 10 in each class.

All racers will receive either a trophy (top 5 finishers in both classes) or a medal depending upon their place position, a custom souvenir number plate and a bunch of cool items in their registration bag!  Medals will be presented immediately after finishing.

For those of you who are reading this and are not familiar with the Strider 14x Sport bike please go HERE and check out how cool it is!
