Event description
Strider Adventure-Cross is for 14x Strider Bike riders from 4-7 years old with the ambition and stamina to race in a Cyclo Cross like event.

About this event

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 June 18th, 2022) on Strider 14x Sport bikes. The race is broken up into two different classes 4 and 5 year old class and the 6 and 7 year old class. There will be those two different classes but run 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 (June 18th) on the same course. This Strider Adventure-Cross race will be run immediately after the races. Please go HERE if you would like to register for any of those races which are for three different Classes (2 Year Old Class, 3 Year Old Class and 4 Year Old Class)

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 approximately 800 feet (one lap - no bicycle)

     Stage 2:  One parent or guardian will then hand off the bike (in balance bike mode - no pedals) to the racer to race on for approximately 1600 feet (two laps)

     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 approximately 2400 feet to the finish line (three laps)

The course will have a wide variety of 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.

We are excited to be partnering with the Bentonville Bike Festival folks and their awesome event on the same day.

Our race will be on June 18th starting at the Bentonville Bentonville City Square.  We will have the tentative following schedule:

2:00 pm - 6:00 pm      Packet Pickup and Check-in at the Strider vendor tent at the festival. Location will be in front of our Strider Store (109 N Main St. Bentonville, AR)

5:00pm Exclusive Trial Demonstration with Kenny Belaey and Hans “No Way” Rey

7:15 pm                            Rider's Meeting for all racers

7:20 pm                            Race start!

7:20 pm ⁓ 7:45 pm       Race  for both the 4 and 5 year old class and the 6 and 7 year old class! (Our best guess for how long it will take to finish the course is the time anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes). Podium ceremony for top finishers immediately afterwards.

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!

We will only be having one race and registrations will be limited to the first 20 registrants. 

All registrations will have to be made online prior to June 17th at 8pm Central Time.  There will be no registrations after that time or on race day or whenever full registration (30 registrants) is realized.

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 the 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!
