My verdict: All-terrain stroller with beautiful design
“This is more expensive side-by-side double stroller, but the quality and versatility are definitely worth the money. Bumbleride Indie Twin accepts two infant car seats and two bassinets so parents can use it from birth.
It’s not only a top-notch twin stroller, but also a great double stroller for siblings. All thanks to excellent stability and weight distribution.
The regular seats feature near-flat recline, there are also adjustable calf rests.You can actually use the full recline and calf rest raised all the way up to convert the seat into infant-mode. It provides secured and enclosed space for small infant.
It can be even used for a newborn baby but since the seat is facing front, you wouldn’t be able to observe your baby (except for the viewing window on the canopy). That’s why I think getting a bassinet for newborn baby is better option, particularly for frequent walks.
But it’s nice to have a newborn-ready seat, especially since this double stroller is quite pricey and not all parents may have extra budget for the carrycots.
The maximum weight capacity is 45 lbs for each seat. Based on customer reviews I can tell you that Bumbleride Indie Twin Double Stroller will most certainly serve you up to 3-3.5 years.
I love how well-padded and cushy the seats are. They are perfect for naps on-the-go, no matter how old your babies are.
Another noteworthy features are the two large canopies that extend really far. They even pass over the bumper bars! Even when the seat is fully reclined the canopy provides great amount of shade. Thanks to that you can be sure that the sun won’t disturb your kiddo’s nap. No more worries about sun in baby’s eyes!…” READ MORE

“We recently received this beautiful double stroller for all of our hiking/outdoor adventures that are too much for baby wearing, and oh my goodness… we are in love! The tires are truly all-terrain and make even the rockiest trails feel smooth. Mabel falls asleep for almost every walk we do in this stroller. Nora loves being able to see Mabel; she can just look right over and there’s her bff smiling at her! I never thought I’d want/need a side-by-side but it’s been amazing!”
“The handle is pivot height-adjustable, and the seats can both recline fully or sit upright. With a magnetic window opening, it’s easy to peek on the girls while they snooze/snack/chat away while taking in our scenery. The large canopy is seriously one of the best I’ve seen/used. It’s already pretty big, then two extra panels fold out so they can truly be protected from the sun, but with the mesh window, still having plenty of air.”
“Fist bumps because best jogger/all-terrain/side-by-side stroller ever! 😉 I truly LOVE the simplicity of this stroller. I feel like double strollers (especially side-by-sides) are usually really bulky and just have too much going on. The minimalist design, colors, and all-around structure is what first attracted me to this stroller, the safety, smooth rides, materials used, and the list goes on is what made us want it for our lifestyle. We’ve gone running/jogging, rocky trails, steep hill hikes… and it aces the test every time.”
“All in all we are extremely pleased with this stroller. It meets our needs and exceeded our expectations. Oh! And it fits through doorways, ha! I’ve taken it both to Target, the Zoo, the grocery store with zero issues and don’t feel like a semi-truck walking around with it either. It’s a beautiful stroller and we are extremely grateful for the opportunity to use and review it!”

“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

The Tot recently shared their guide to twin strollers featuring Indie Twin. Thank you for the shout out The Tot!!
“Preparing for the arrival of twins can be exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. When I found out I was pregnant with my set, I already had a feisty two-year- old to contend with and the thought of having three under the age of three terrified me. I had no idea how I would even manage to leave the house let alone cart them around from park to playdate. It turns out that the secret is in the stroller. Before you impulse-buy a sexy model with all the bells and whistles, make sure you’ve identified your needs. Do you want a high-performing stroller that will allow you to power walk with the other moms in your neighborhood, a compact model you can easily throw in the car for weekends away or an easy-to- maneuver one that will make shopping a breeze?…”
“Can’t decide between a traditional side-by-side and a jogging stroller? The Bumbleride Indie Twin Stroller offers the perfect middle ground. This versatile model features four wheels like a traditional stroller, but its all-wheel suspension and easy one-hand push make it ideal for jogging and walking on any terrain. The backrests, footrests and handle are fully adjustable for a customized fit, and the fabric is made from 100% recycled plastic.”

Freelance Art Director
Bumbleride Adventurer, Elaina Bellis
How has your role as an art director and model evolved since becoming a mama to twins?
My role as an Art Director has been pushed to the back burner for now since becoming a mother! My role as a model has become much more busy since becoming a mother of twins! So many people want to shoot the girls with me! It’s so much fun!!!
What activities fill your cup with gratitude? How has your perspective changed since becoming a parent?
I am an avid hiker! Being with nature fills my heart with joy and gratitude going into each day. I guess if I am able to go hiking now with twins, I feel lucky that I am getting time to myself to be able to do it! I don’t get a lot of solo time anymore! So I am super grateful when I do!
As a busy mom of young twins, when do you find time to do things for yourself and how do you keep that a constant?
James is really good about letting me get time to do yoga, hike, or go for a run! Also, each week we both get a night off to hang with our friends! We are also really lucky to have family who are kind enough to watch the girls so we can have date nights from time to time! I always feel like when I really need some “me” time I am able to have it! I am lucky!!!
“This is seriously the best stroller EVER! A game changer for our family!!!!!”
