One of my favorite, favorite things about Southern California has to be beach bikes. In fact, I think my perfect day would include at least an hour or two of riding. There’s just something about leisurely pedaling in the sun with your friends, making stops for food, drinks and ice cream, and making that late afternoon pit stop for a cat nap. You can usually rent a rusty character, but I’ve gotten so many people asking about my cruiser from BeachBikes.net. It’s called the Scholar and I love it because it doesn’t look like a bro’s ride at all. It’s high season right now, but you can usually score something for under $200. Ladies, they have a full line for you too.
