    Default Pram/stroller suitable for long walks - not too expensive?

    I'm thinking of getting a new stroller to walk my 2 year old for long walks so I can get some exercise. I have an expensive pram already (peg perego) but the pavements where I live slope badly toward the road and I have to work really hard to stop the wheels turning into the slope. It's so hard to keep it straight. And if I lock the wheels forward it just creates other problems and doesn't stop the issue 100% anyway.

    So, I am looking for a good long distance stroller, good for power walking, comfy for baby, not too expensive (under $500).

    Have been looking at combi, well jogger, mountain buggy, maclaren online - just need help deciding!

    How about baby jogger city mini? My absolute fav and I have been through a few.
    Mountain buggy was getting too right for my baby when he was 6m . It's a great small pram but yeh very skinny. The baby jogger mini is similar just wider for my chubba cheeks.
    So easy to turn we use it on gravel through bush and sticks and road and no issue. The gt version has forever air tyres with tread. Will never puncture! Love it!

    We have a Beema Q that has held up well with lots of walking/jogging. My DD is almost 3 and it's still going strong.

    Baby jogger city mini GT. I wouldn't get the normal mini for walking though the GT has better wheels!!
