About Ryan McFarland

Founder and Chief Enthusiast Ryan McFarland is a riding and racing enthusiast. Born into a mechanical family, his grandfather was a race car engineer and his father owned a motorcycle dealership. This early exposure to cars, cycles, and racing influenced Ryan to ride dirt bikes. Later, he added mountain biking, dirt bike and stock car racing to his list of hobbies. His natural inclination to tinker and a finely-tuned competitive spirit led him to invent the U.S. Patented Thudbuster suspension seatpost for bicycles. The inventions continued when Ryan also developed a U.S. Patented suspension system for wheel chairs. He is currently the Founder and CEO of Strider Sports International, Inc., home of the STRIDER ™ No-Pedal Balance Bike. Ryan resides in Rapid City, SD with his wife and two young boys.
