STRIDER Bikes for Special Needs

Strider Bikes for Children with Special Needs

Too often people with cognitive or developmental disabilities have been unable to ride a bike.  With the proper bike and a proven method to learn, this can change!

Shane STRIDER Bike Special NeedsFor several years, parents of children with special needs all over the world have been approaching Strider and letting us know how life changing our bikes have been for their children. STRIDER™ bikes are providing a means for inclusive social interaction and play. Suddenly, a child that had previously been sitting on the porch while the other children in the neighborhood rode their bikes are riding right alongside their peers, grinning ear to ear.
So, why is a STRIDER balance bike the best option for a person with special needs?  Our bikes break down the overwhelming task of learning how to ride into a safe and natural progression; it's as easy as walking. With feet safely on the ground, a rider is easily able to maneuver and ride our lightweight bikes.
 
Strider bikes have turned individuals with Down syndrome, autism, low muscle tone, poor balance, arthrogryposis, and cerebral palsy, into bike riding enthusiasts! We have received countless succes stories from parents around the world.

Strider more than just a bike

More Than Just a Bike

STRIDER bikes are also proving to be FUN tools for therapists and teachers alike! What used to be boring exercise has turned into a great time riding a bike! Several therapists have told us they are skipping the special needs equipment and are using STRIDER bikes as a reward. Children aren't even aware they are still performing important range of motion, flexibility, strengthening, endurance, balance, and many other body mechanic skills by simple riding a STRIDER!

Although the STRIDER was not originally designed as an adaptive needs bike, it has proven to be the perfect bike for people with special needs.  The STRIDER is different in that it's not a bike with clunky unstable training wheels, or a heavy tricycle you can't take anywhere, its an awesome bike for kids, including children with disabilities.


Bikes for Special Needs

It's Never Too Late to Start

At Strider Bikes, we want everyone to have an opportunity to experience life on two wheels. The number one toddler balance bike responsible for teaching over a million children how to ride will now be joined by two larger models, ensuring we have the bike to fit people of all ages, sizes, and abilities!

Strider's trademark simplicity, lightweight design, durability, functionality, and easy adjustability remain featured in each of the two new sizes designed to cater to youth and adults with special needs.

A STRIDER balance bike is the perfect balance of safety, performance, and FUN, without the weight and complications of pedals. The use of a STRIDER bike promotes a natural, safe method to learn to balance and ride.
