Harley-RCAS partnership in full Stride

Harley-Davidson has donated 375 Strider bikes to elementary schools across Rapid City

RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Black Hills Harley-Davidson has recently donated 375 Strider bikes to Rapid City Area Schools. Canyon Lake Elementary was one of those locations that received the special donation.

Kids eagerly waited in the gym for the Strider bikes to be brought inside, cheering once the bikes were brought in. The partnership is the first of its kind in the nation, and Black Hills Harley-Davidson says it hopes it’ll encourage kids to get out and enjoy riding bikes.

Terry Rymer, co-owner of the Black Hills Harley-Davidson, talked about the pride of serving the community.

“We’re going to put Striders in every elementary school in Rapid City, a total of 375 Striders,” Rymer stated. “We’re delivering them today. The kids are awfully excited as you can see. It’s really a great experience, and Black Hills Harley-Davidson is proud to be able to do this, especially for Rapid City and our community.”

Coyle, one of the students in the RCAS system, was immediately comfortable with the new Strider bike.

“I love it!” Coyle exclaimed

Coyle is already making her mark in the riding community after just one day.

The other schools that participated in the partnership were Pinedale, South Canyon, Meadowbrook, Grandview, South Park, Horace Mann and General Beadle.
