While on a trip to Europe in 2007 with her husband and their one-year old, Boot Scoot Bikes founder Katie Stirling could not believe it as a toddler zoomed past them on two wheels. Amazed at the toddler's ability, she began asking his parents about his bike. To her surprise, the pedal-less "walking bikes" had been popular in Europe for several years. Once she returned home, she began to search for a similar bike for her son, but was shocked at the prices of the European wooden versions. Unable to find exactly what she wanted at a reasonable price, she decided to develop and manufacture a more cost-effective and durable bike, and share them with you!
