Returning to Melbourne from New Zealand, it was back to having no family around and Mark often away for five days at a time for work. This meant essentially leaving Bruno and I to wing it solo. While gaining a huge appreciation for single parents out there, I also started to fully appreciate the freedom and ability to train that the terrain gave me. Cue: ultra-marathon no longer at the back of our minds but eyes now lingering over the entry button.

Our little mascot (Bruno) arrived by speed train late October 2013. Having been very lucky with a smooth and natural delivery, it was not long before I was out and about with him in my terrain .
For me, buying a buggy was like buying a car or a bike: I needed one that suited my needs of living an active outdoor-lifestyle. For example, if you're a keen skier you generally need a car that has 4WD; if you're a mountain biker you need a mountain bike vs. if you're a triathlete you generally need a time trial bike (okay, let's be honest, there's a few needs there that should be replaced with wants, but you get the idea).
When choosing a buggy for my second baby I wanted to get something stylish yet practical. This time round I wanted something that didn't just simply serve a purpose; it had to meet my needs in functionality and suit my lifestyle, but also have style. I wanted something that I could push around with pride...
Once the initial excitement of finding out we were having twins subsided I was left with a sudden sinking feeling. It first started as we drove home from our three month scan - questions swirling in my head like 'will we need a bigger car?' 'how will we know what car seat to put in?' 'how will they both fit inside Sarah for that long?', and the all important recurring question 'will I be a good father?'
Daddyexplorer, Mikael Strandberg, has begun his latest expedition, walking 450 miles from Manchester to London pushing his 20 month old daughter Sardana in a buggy! The Mountain Buggy terrain was the only choice of buggy for the challenge, offering precision steering and maximum control for on and off road.
That's sort of how it went. That life changing moment when the radiographer looked across my wife's already large belly and asked casually "do twins run in the family?"
Cleverly engineered for function and durability, each and every Mountain Buggy is designed to enable parents to live a life without limit. Using air-filled tyres allows our buggies to absorb bumps across all terrain, offering supreme comfort for you and your baby.
