On the First Day of "Fill Their Stockings" - Take Two

November 28, 2011

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we worked through a few kinks that came to our attention this weekend when we tried to kick off this event. Collectively, we decided it was best "Re-Launch" today, Cyber Monday! We know so many families were super busy shopping, decorating, and enjoying the holiday weekend. No worries though, you did not miss a thing. We are giving everyone the opportunity to see the products we featured on Day One, again today! Those that previously commented and already donated need not worry. We received them. THANK YOU!!

That being said, let me reintroduce my first featured item.

Today, you will have a chance to win one of these AWESOME STRIDER BIKES in the color of your choice!!!

Strider Bike GIveaway

I am very excited to be featuring these super cool bikes on my blog today.
What little one would not want to see one of these waiting for them under the Christmas tree?

If you are not familiar with Strider Bikes, let me tell you a little bit about them:

These bikes help your child learn to ride a bicycle easily and safely without training wheels.
Strider PreBikes help your child learn balance and coordination BEFORE pedaling, which develops wonderful self confidence.

The strider bike in action
Riders can start on a Strider as soon as they can walk. Charlotte above, started on hers when she was 19 months and rode her first pedal bike at 3 years old. She never needed training wheels.

● One of the LOWEST seat heights
● One of the LIGHTEST running bikes
● The ONLY running bike with frame-integrated Launch Pad™ footrests
● Kid and parent-friendly EVA polymer tires - no flat tires!
● One of the most ADJUSTABLE running bikes - seat and handle bars adjust
● User-specific Progression™ headset
● Optional foot brake adds even more fun
● 100% Satisfaction Guarantee
● Choose from 6 Colors (blue, yellow, green, orange, pink, red)

Striders can go places training wheels cannot and are much safer.
Your child learns to lean when riding the Strider so they learn to balance. There are no scary training wheel tip-overs. The balance your child learns carries over into everyday life - whether it be dance, soccer or other sports.

You can see some pictures of the Strider in action by clicking HERE.

As the winner of this prize you will win:
one (1) Strider PreBike ($99.00 Retail Value)
one (1) quick release accessory ($6.00 Retail Value) for easy seat adjustment
and because the proceeds are going to benefit Half the Sky, the winner will also get one (1) XL seat post ($16.00 Retail Value) for when your kiddo starts to grow!

The current color in stock is blue. Adam’s Bike Shop will work with you to ensure that you get the color you want. If would like one of the other colors shown or listed above, there will be a 2-3 day wait due to shipping.

Hi Lisa, just donated! So excited about this event..what a great thing you three are doing! Hope to win this for my little Sloan and help you meet your goal! It sure beats the way my brother taught me how to ride a bike-pushed me down a grassy hill screaming then let go! Ha!
