Raising Cane’s® and Strider® Give 120 Bikes to Lincoln Toddlers, Hosting Party April 17

Rapid City, SD (March 28, 2016) — The Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers® franchise in Lincoln, Nebraska, is teaming up with Strider Bikes, the world’s leading manufacturer and marketer of children’s no-pedal balance bikes, to give away 120 Strider Bikes to local youth. Raising Cane’s is hosting a Giveaway Party to hand out the bikes on April 17 from 1 p.m. – 3 pm. at their restaurant located at 58th & Old Cheney (5810 S. 58th Street). SCHEELS will also be onsite with a FREE Adventure Zone where children can come test ride a Strider Bike. The Giveaway Party is open to the public.

Raising Cane’s will be donating over 50 of the bikes to the children and families at the Montessori School for Young Children in Lincoln. In addition, 35 bikes will be given away at the April 17 Giveaway Party, where 5 bikes will be given away every 15 minutes to those in attendance. An additional 20 bikes will be given away to customers who register in-restaurant between March 28 and April 10, and the remainder will be given to children of their crewmembers.

“The partnership with Strider was a no-brainer for us. Not only does it embody one of our core values of supporting active lifestyles, but our (Justin and I) two children used them as well and we are true believers in the bike,” said Jennifer Jones, owner of the Lincoln and Grand Island Raising Cane’s restaurants. “So when we had the opportunity to give other children a chance to have a Strider Bike of their own and to host an event that would put 120 of these bikes under children in the community, we were very excited and didn’t hesitate to become apart of it.”

After the April 17 Giveaway Party, local toddlers can practice their skills to race in the Lincoln Strider Cup race on June 11. The Lincoln race is the first of three events in the 2016 Strider Cup, a national Strider Bike racing series for toddlers and children. It is also the first time Strider has held a national race in Lincoln. These family-friendly races for the tiniest competitors will give small children a chance to put their Strider Balance Bike skills to the test.

Derek Bombeck of Lincoln got Strider Bikes for his two-year-old twin sons Collin and Graham when they turned one. "It has been amazing watching their progression and confidence over the past 9 months. When we go outside the first thing they ask for is their Strider bikes. We ride them around the neighborhood and at the park. With the balance and coordination they are learning on their Strider Bikes, transitioning to pedal bikes should be easy."

The June 11 event will have races for 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds, and Special Needs riders of all ages. Registration fee is $25 online or $35 on-site for the toddler races. Strider has waived the registration fee for riders with special needs. Racers will receive a Strider goodie bag valued at more than $50 with their registration, and all racers will receive either a medal or a trophy. Pre-registration is open now at http://www.striderbikes.com/lincoln.

Upcoming Strider Cup races are slated for June 25 in Salt Lake City, Utah, and July 9 in Spokane, WA. Participating in any of these events automatically qualifies the rider for the Strider Cup World Championship, July 29-30 at Pier 35 in San Francisco, California. The Strider event page, http://www.striderbikes.com/events has more information on all of the races.
