Strider balance bike company expanding Rapid City Headquarters

Posted:

The Strider Bike World Headquarters will be moving to a 26,000 square foot facility. The new building is up the street from the old one on North Plaza Drive. 

Ryan McFarland, company founder, says the idea started in his garage in 2007. Now, there are 30 employees with distribution to 70 countries.

He says the new facility will allow the company to hire more employees and expand for administrative tasks.    

"A big part of that expansion is office space something that we're currently limited on. So the beauty there it's going to let us bring on more people, we're figuring 6 to 10 employees in the next couple of years, in new hires," says McFarland.   

McFarland says the Strider World Championships will be held in Rapid City for the first time, bringing in even more business to the area.

Strider Bike employees will be completely moved into the new building at the end of the month.
