Over 180 children aged 5 and younger, and people with special needs raced their Strider balance bikes around a road type course at Riverfront Park on Saturday, June 9, 2016. Organized by Strider Sports International, the Strider Cup race in Spokane was one of three held nationally. The Strider Cup World Championships will be held in San Francisco later this month on July 29 and 30. Racers who participated in one of the three national events, including the Spokane races, or who show up to the practice qualifying races in San Francisco on July 29 will qualify to race on July 30. These photographs show the end of the 2 year old and younger races as well as 3 year old races.
