Pint sized riders between 18 months and 5 years old are set to ride in the first ever Strider British Balance Bike Championship later this year.
The 2013 Strider British Balance Bike Championships will have five major qualifying events, starting in London on Sunday 5 May at the Merton BMX track, then going on to Gosport (June 16th), Gravesend (July 21st), Birmingham (August 21st) and finishing in Manchester at (September 22nd).
At each event, winners can enter the invitation-only finals, also held in Manchester in September, for the chance to be crowned champion and represent Great Britain at the Strider World Championships in Florida later in the year.
“The Strider British Balance Bike Championships are a great opportunity for riders younger than ever before to get on two wheels and experience riding at some of the UK’s biggest and best venues,” Sam Foakes, manager of the National Cycling Centre BMX track, said. “Not only will this help build confidence and coordination but will also inspire a generation of children to get on a bike and have a go.”
