Uppababy Ridge Jogging Stroller - Recommend

Well howdy mums, dads, pups, and cats! 


Today we want to review the Uppababy Ridge Jogging Stroller - which we've given an overall rating of "Recommend" to. Read on for more info!


When we first started looking at strollers, we wanted to make sure we could run with whatever we got because we're active people and have active dogs and we thought we could continue to work out (in shorter bursts than a bike ride) if we had a jogging stroller. I did a quick search of "best jogging strollers" and got immediate sticker shock! #1 from Runner's World was $1,000. However, if you scroll down to #3 or 4 on their list, you find the Uppababy Ridge, still pricey at $600 but not quite as shocking.


So what do we like about the Ridge?

1. This is a true off road jogging stroller. We've taken it on some gnarly forest "roads" with the offspring and pups and it can handle it all smoothly! It has built in shocks, disc brakes, and run-flat tires (no air in the tires, cannot get a flat!). It handles easily even in very bumpy terrain and feels pretty effortless to push.

2. Various options for the bebe! You can attach your car seat (check compatibility) directly to the stroller so if the offspring is sleeping when you arrive at the trailhead, you can let them sleep and simply put the car seat right into the stroller. Once bebe is a bit older, it has a 5 point harness and you can adjust their sitting position from straight up to basically flat. 

3. Lots of storage! Yesterday, we needed a few things at the store and so we ran! We were able to take bebe wrapped up in winter clothes and then carry home two bags of groceries in the bottom storage compartment! 

4. It's another way we can get outside! 


Some things we don't love...

1. Price, find one used if you can. This is a bit pricey for most people new. To us, it was worth it because we know we'll run with it a lot.

2. Folding/unfolding. The mechanism itself is quite easy and simple, simply lift the foot cover, push in the button and the stroller should collapse down. In practice, sometime the button gets stuck or doesn't really release and it can take several tries to get this thing folded.

3. It's a beast/bulky. This point is a pro/con. It's what allows you to get out and adventure with your baby, but it also takes up a lot of space in a car (most of the back of a Subaru Outback) and is hard to handle once it's folded (30lbs and bulky). It's not an everyday let's-go-downtown-and-walk-around stroller, it's meant for jogging and not much else.
