“Hi I’m Karen! Better known as Kaz or Kazzi. I am a nursery nurse, BMX racer and former mx rider. I founded Ready Steady Riders in September 2016, 6 months after buying my daughter a strider bike for her 2nd birthday. We decided life is better behind bars, and it’s been an awesome ride so far!
Riding a bike is a life skill, independence, a foundation for healthy, active lifestyles, and possibly the best gift you can give a child. This belief and value is at the heart of all Ready Steady Riders are and do” -Coach Kazzi
To a toddler a balance bike so much more than just a bike, it’s a valuable tool for learning essential life skills, and gateway to freedom and independence.
By providing children with a bike that they can ride easily from the age of 1 they learn to ride a bike as easily as they learn to walk. Balance, coordination, speed perception and control are all mastered before pedals are introduced. Balance bike riders bypass stabilisers and make the transition to pedals and brake levers smoothly and effortlessly.
Strider bikes are designed to be simple yet effective. The 12 inch are seriously hard-wearing, ergonomically designed with some clever features and light as a feather. They work perfectly for kids and are convenient for parents.
Strider have also made the perfect learning tool for riders ready to progress to pedal propulsion. The 14x Sport converts from a balance to a pedal bike in just 3 minuts and has changed the “learn to ride” game.
Strider is more than just early rider focused design. It’s a community based around Strider racing, events, and local coaching sessions. They even hold an annual World Championship!
