Bumbleride Ambassadors – Jeremiah and Elise Coil – San Jose, CA
Jeremy and Elise can most often be found enjoying the outdoors or a nearby body of water. This is the second post in a new series named Bumbleride Ambassadors where we share active and outdoor families’ experiences with their Bumbleride stroller(s).
Please tell us about yourselves
We have two daughters, Quinn (3) and Andie (1) and live in San Jose, CA. We met while attending school in Honolulu, HI and lived in Washington state as well. We are a family of Aquarius’ so we are always up for an adventure!
How has your life changed since having Quinn and Andie?
Having Quinn and Andie has allowed us to appreciate the little things in life we would normally take for granted. We cherish every moment as a family and look forward to a lifetime of memories!
Tell us about your love of the outdoors
In our free time you will find the Coil family outdoors. Surfing, biking, and hiking are our favorite activities. We love excursions to the beach, parks, and forests nearby and we always have our Bumbleride with us for whatever we get into!

What do you love about your Bumblerides?
We love our Indie 4!!! As parents of a toddler and infant life is nonstop craziness, and our Indie 4 helps keep everyone sane and ready for our next family adventure. This being our second Indie, we were amazed at how Bumbleride was able to improve such an already awesome stroller. Numerous beach trips, hikes, and other excursions our Indie was ready for the challenge.
After a quick and painless assembly out of the box, we were ready to roll! Folding up the Indie was never an issue, but on occasion, the arms that locked the Indie into the folding position would be difficult to clamp onto the frame. The Indie 4 has a new style of locking arm which is more flexible and better designed. No more wrestling to get the Indie folded! The harness straps are also redesigned making it easier to buckle and unbuckle the little ones.
We immediately noticed the Indie 4 felt significantly lighter and more compact to its predecessor making throwing it in the back of the SUV a breeze. The fourth wheel makes the compact design more sturdy, maneuverable, and an overall smoother ride. Even when taking the Indie 4 off road the fourth wheel aided in stability when riding over uneven downhill terrain. No worries of tipping over!
If you are like us, and have an independent toddler who likes to walk everywhere…then the Mini Board attachment is a must have! We have been on numerous outings where our toddler gets a little tired of walking and takes refuge on the Mini Board for a little while, and just cruises. The Mini Board attachment is very easy to put on and take off when not needed. It is a perfect solution keeping the whole family on the go! The only change I would make in relation to the Mini Board would be to have some type of attachment handles for the toddler to hold on to while riding the board. Other than that it is perfect as is, and a genius idea!
Our family LOVES our Indie 4 and can’t wait for more adventures to come!
Trailwalks are a breeze!!
