This post focuses on taking it out and about in Tyne and Wear.
We had a short walk from our house down to the local metro station and then a fifteen minute ride on the train and then a five minute walk at the other end!
The pushchair passed the first test which was taking it backwards out of our front door like I do with our big pushchair.
On the walk down to the metro station, the pushchair felt a bit odd to push, like it didn’t want to go in the direction I wanted it to go in. This was solved once we got to the metro station as I realised I had only taken one of the wheel locks off so one was on swivel and the other was on locked.
The pushchair went onto the train with ease and I was able to sit on the sideways seats by the door with Freddie parked in front of me and he took up very little room. People could still walk past and down the aisle with ease.
At the other end we got off the train no problem and into the lift. The biggest test for the pushchair in my opinion would have been the ticket barriers at Jesmond station. I knew from using Haymarket station that I always needed to use the wide gates with our bigger pram, But the BabyStart One Hand Fold went through the normal sized ticket barrier with plenty of space to spare!
It handled the bumpy ground with ease on the way to our event venue and inside to the venue it pushed great on the carpets of the hotel corridor.
On the way back we had to walk quite quick from our local metro station as we had to get back to pick up James from school, but again the pushchair handled brilliant!
Over all I was really pleased with how it handled on our first trip out with it! The next test for the pushchair will be travelling via train to visit the boys grandparents in Surrey in a few weeks time!
