We arrived. We ran (with Speed). We were inspired once again.
This was the third consecutive year that we’ve sponsored the Baby Mama Division of the inspiring She is Beautiful run in Santa Barbara (we also sponsor the Santa Cruz run!) Being there, it’s impossible to not be inspired, encouraged and celebrated. The two sisters, Melissa McConville (race founder & director) and Sara Tanza (Assistant Race Director & Chief of Fun) wouldn’t have it any other way. They exude happiness and kindness + see the good in everyone. Their MORE LOVE attitude is contagious.
With motivational words posted all through the course and groups of women from all walks of life walking, running, skipping or pushing a stroller, the race goes by in a blink. Set right on the Santa Barbara coastline, the beautiful scenery is the icing on the cake.
Bumbleride’s mission is to make gear for you to get out and do what you love while doing our best to preserve the planet we all share. This run helps us see our mission in action. This year, not only did we see tons of parents out running in the fresh air with their little ones in a stroller, we were so thrilled to see RSIB take the waste element to a whole new level with both compost and recycling options next to trash bins. The race directors regularly attend conferences to help them to reduce their environmental footprint and reduce waste altogether in these large scale events. So cool.
Each year, proudly gift a Bumbleride Speed jogging stroller to each of the winners of the two distances, 5k and 5 miler. These strong, dedicated mamas deserve it! Congratulations to the 5k winner, Molly Thomson from Santa Barbara, CA and the 5 mile winner, Laura Ewing from Ventura, CA.
Join us next year!
She.is.beautiful’s Mission Statement
Empowering women and girls through movement and community in a supportive environment where they are able to take the lessons learned on the road and trail into the rest of their lives. We believe that beauty is more of a feeling than a physical attribute. We believe everyone deserves to feel beautiful, strong, smart, and capable in their own unique way. We believe so strongly in the power of sweat and community. We think there is something powerful that happens when a women/girl learns how strong she really is and how this can impact the rest of her life.
“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.
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

Why We Love It
“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.”- Read the whole article here.
“Happy Earth Day! While we use these all year round we wanted to share our favorite eco-friendly products just in time to celebrate!”
“15. Bumbleride Indie: All Bumbleride materials are chosen for safety and function, but also for their impact on the environment.”

Best Double Stroller 2015 – Indie Twin – Baby Gizmo Awards
“The Bumbleride Indie Twin has been one of our favorite double strollers for years! It is not only gorgeous but a practical, side-by-side stroller that is parent and multiple-kid-friendly. Watch the Bumbleride Indie Twin Baby Gizmo Video Review.
What we like best:
- Roomy, seats with flat reclines that can accommodate a newborn (or two!).
- Independent reclines for those days that one needs to rest and the other child is about seeing the world.
- Huge, independent canopies.
- Pushes like a dream (even with one hand!).
- Giant basket.
- Adjustable handlebar.
- Twin Moms: It can accommodate 2 infant car seats at the same time! With twins, how do you choose who stays in a car seat and who gets the stroller seat in the other double stroller options?” – Baby Gizmo
