Ottawa Balance Bikes - a Strider Prebike Dealer Canada


Bike riding becomes a breeze when your child learns balance and coordination before pedaling.  The STRIDER balance bike takes pedaling out of the mix so that kids can concentrate solely on learning balance, which takes more practice.  Pedaling is a secondary skill that kids can easily learn within a few short minutes.

who strider

can ride?

If your child can walk they can ride a STRIDER balance bike.

The low seat height, at just 11 inches, makes it possible for any size rider to have their feet flat on the ground. This gives the rider complete control, and builds their self-confidence.

We suggest a 1 to 5 year old range, an inseam (floor to crotch) of at least 11” and a weight of less then 60lbs.

what strider

is it?

A balance bike is a 2 wheel bike with no pedals that teaches balance, control and confidence.

The STRIDER is more than just a teaching tool. Long after your child has learned to ride a bicycle (sometimes within just a few weeks) he or she will still turn to the STRIDER for sheer fun!


where strider

can you ride?

Due to the STRIDER's puncture-proof, foam tires, it can go over any terrain - not just a paved bike path.

It can be ridden in the yard, on the bike path, in the woods, virtually anywhere you walk. Once accomplished on the STRIDER, your child will be confident on hills, forest trails, even small jumps.

why strider

buy a STRIDER?

The STRIDER opens up a whole world for your child to ride on and to experience the sheer joy of riding.

Kids don’t even know they are learning to ride a bike because they are having too much fun.

The STRIDER is steady, stable, safe so there are no "tricycle tip-overs" or "training-wheel wobbles" that stir-up a fear, hesitancy, or a dislike of bike riding.

My Boys

Ottawa Balance Bikes is home based business in the community of Barrhaven in Ottawa, Ontario. I'm a Mom who fell in love with the STRIDER when it taught our oldest at 3 1/2 years old to ride a pedal bike and our 23 month old to keep up to him. I have bikes in stock and have demos bikes to view and test ride. Contact me if your child would like to test ride or you would like to purchase a STRIDER.
