Joining the Balance Bike Revolution!
The Strider UK World Champion, Ashton Heron, winner of the previous event in Manchester and runner up in the World Championships in Florida in October, interviewed by Mike Bushell of BBC Breakfast TV, proved just how good he is, by winning again in the 3-year old group. Put him on a bike and no one can beat him!
What was particularly obvious was just how determined and brave many of the children participating were. One small boy, aged 3, fell from his bike just yards from the finishing line, landing painfully on his face. He picked himself up, got back on his bike and rode across the finish ...... and then he burst into tears!

To make this film, we used four different HD video cameras, including a palm sized Sony HandyCam fitted onto a Steadicam, and a helmet mounted GoPro camera, ably used by two of the young contestants!
