Indie Twin Review – Today’s Parent Magazine

November 21st, 2017

 

“BEST FOR Parents looking for a double stroller that can navigate any terrain.

TOP BENEFITS Deep seat recline, generous canopy, air-filled tires with traction, machine washable fabrics.

BOTTOM LINE The Bumbleride Indie Twin is a double stroller that’s built to manage tougher terrains with ease, while ensuring your kids are comfy and secure.

Bumbleride is known for their top-notch, sturdy strollers, and the Bumbleride Indie Twin is no exception. With its solid steel frame, durable fabric and air-filled tires, it’s built to last. At 36 pounds and 30-inches wide, the Indie Twin isn’t exactly the kind of lightweight double stroller you’re likely to fold up and toss in the trunk for a quick jaunt to the store, but if you want a double stroller that can handle snow, sand, grass and gravel with ease, this is one smooth ride. The side-by-side adjustable seats offer unblocked views for both kids, so no one will be squished or get stuck looking at the back of their sibling’s seat. Environmentally conscious parents will appreciate Bumbleride’s commitment to using recycled materials to produce their Oeko-Tex certified fabrics, which are PVC and phthalate free, and come in some pretty great colours, too.

FINAL WORD

All of our parent testers rated the Bumbleride Indie Twin as very good in terms of quality and style, and good to very good for ease of use, value and overall satisfaction…more” – Today’s Parent

Indie In New York City – Miss Alissa

November 13th, 2017

Bumbleride Indie New York City

“One of our favorite things to do when we lived in NYC was go for walks around the neighborhood and shoot film shots.  NYC just looks better on film, doesn’t it?  We would wake up and get coffee from our favorite coffee shop and then walk around exploring our neighborhood.  It is one of my favorite memories from Poppy’s first few months of life.  I don’t miss NYC – but I definitely miss the days when Poppy would hangout in the stroller for a good hour or two for a nice stroll =)” – Miss Alissa

10 Best Baby Strollers – WhatToExpect.com – Best Eco Stroller

October 31st, 2017

{Excerpted from WhatToExpect.com} …In those early days, the only thing getting between your newborn and the open road ahead of him is how to get around. You might use an infant car seat or baby carrier to help your little one begin navigating the great big world. But as those first few pounds begin to start coming on, those tiny legs begin to wiggle and kick, and the gear you need for outings begins piling up, a stroller will make transporting your child from home to his next adventure so much simpler. What is the best stroller to buy for your baby? It really depends on your family’s needs. But you can start narrowing in on what will work for you with our top picks, which we chose with input from our What to Expect community moms, who have spent years taking them for a spin and know what models will truly go the distance

Best Eco Stroller – Bumbleride Indie



It’s just a fact. When along comes baby, along comes all of baby’s things — the diapers, bottles, clothes, toys and on and on. For parents trying to keep their family footprint to a minimum, it can be truly a challenge. But the Bumbleride Indie is doing its part to help. The all-terrain favorite among moms and dads is designed with eco-friendly polyester fabric, which is made from recycled water bottles (up to 28 per stroller!). Plus, the company’s textile-dying method seeks to conserve gallons of water in the process. What you gain in feeling great about your purchase, you also don’t lose in the quality. What to Expect community member cmz2015 says, “It’s a fantastic stroller. It’s so easy to maneuver, it’s lightweight and the fabric is fantastic. It’s very well-made, sturdy and durable — and quite aesthetically appealing. I’ve had numerous compliments on it.” She says she also appreciates that, even if you choose not to use the bassinet, the seat lays completely flat, which makes it suitable for newborns (but not for jogging — only do that with your baby once your pediatrician gives you the thumbs-up).

Do What You Love – Francesco Perri – Bumbleride Speed

October 2nd, 2017

Ultra Runner

Mountain Dad

Bumbleride Adventurer, Francesco Perri

 

You’re an Ultra Runner.  That’s super impressive.  Tell us about how your training has changed since becoming a Dad.

My wife and I have two children; a four year old boy and two year old girl. Having them has certainly made it difficult to get in the miles and time that I would like to. I’ve learned to incorporate them in my training as much as possible to make sure I’m still getting in quality time with them. So that means I’m often taking my daughter out in my Bumbleride  Speed for some quick road miles or I’m taking them both on short hikes in the mountains. I’ve also learned to try to get a run in whenever I can whether that’s early in the morning before everyone is up or at night after the kids have finally gone to bed.

What is your mindset when running with kids vs. running all on your own?

When I run with my daughter, my mindset is to get some quick road miles. I try not to be out for more than 90 minutes so my daughter doesn’t get restless.  She actually loves hanging out in the Speed so she’s pretty much always a good sport about it. I also make sure to have a few different treats to make sure to keep her happy. So that’s the big difference when I’m running with my daughter; I’m focused on trying to keep her happy. Running on my own is of course different because I don’t need to worry about keeping anyone else happy. It’s great to get out though either way.

Give some tips for parents that need that nudge to get back out on the road/trail for a run, whether it’s with or without your kids.

I was really worried before we had kids that I would have to sacrifice my love of running for them. I decided I then needed to share my love of getting out with them. I’ve started both of them off very young; getting them in the Bumbleride or putting them in my pack to get on the trails. I’ve noticed that my kids love to be outside, they love to explore the world. Get them out with you even if it’s for a short jog around the block. Being a parent is super stressful so you need that time to exercise so you can blow off steam and be more focused when you’re with your kids. I’d also suggest getting your kids on trails if you have anything close by. Let them get out in nature. They’ll love it and you’ll get to spend some great time with them.

“In running some gnarly climbs and fast descents, it was great handling both.  I loved it.”
