Strider Bikes are the fastest, funnest and safest way for kids to learn to ride a bicycle.

Kids can start learning to ride Strider Bikes as soon as they can walk.

We want to encourage students to take responsibility and pursue a healthy lifestyle—now!—and not just when they get older.


Feb 2013, Pacific Grove, CA.

Early morning yoga along the California coast during our winter slide program tour.

We have been doing yoga for years.But recently health issues have made us determined to do longer daily yoga routines to stay in the best shape possible.

Now we do a half hour routine of stretches every morning. Bruce also meditates.

It is great doing sunrise yoga in parks. We also have just enough room to do yoga in our RV.

Feb 2013. We love our new (used) RV. So much bigger than our transvan of 15 years. On slide show tour in California and loving it!

October, 2010. Our newest program, Bruce & Tass--Unplugged,” is an introspective, philosophical and humorous account of our life and travels.

We answer 25 provocative questions people have asked about our lifestyle, including “Do we have a real job?” and “Do we ever fight?”

"Unplugged" tells the quirky and humorous behind the scenes stories of our 34 years together--not only the excitement and adventure, but also thoughtful observations about work, play, faith, love, and laughter, and the importance of finding meaning and purpose in life.
Tass is building her confidence and technical skills back up after two years off her mountain bike. Lebanon Hills park in Eagan, Minnesota (a Minneapolis suburb) has one of the funnest mountain bike trails we ride.

May 2010. We are finishing up our spring slide show tour in Minneapolis where we enjoy hanging out with friends. Dan Buettner is the bestselling author of The Blue Zone, an important book on living healthier and longer lives.

Listen to Dan share the secrets of living to be healthy at 100 years old in this presentation at a TED symposium.

Will Steger has done expeditions to the North Pole and Antacrtica, both dogsledding and skiing. His last trip across Greenland has helped raise awareness of the rapidly melting glaciers. Will began keeping detailed journals of weather observations at age 11. He has always been fascinated with studying climate and seasons.

Will plans to do his next arctic expedition in three years--at age 68. He looks forward to another 30 years of exploring and learning about the world. www.willsteger

Travel Writers & Photographers Workshop, Boulder, CO

screw from Tass's leg
July 2009. She has a second surgury a year later in Boulder, CO, to remove all three of the giant screws put in her leg after she broke it last year. The screws were clustered together in the top of her tibia, just below the knee. The incision on the kneecap and top of her knee are from the orthoscopic work done to clean up the joint and remove excess scar tissue.
