STRIDER Bikes for 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!
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.
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.
