    So what if some of us are still a little shaky behind the handlebars? That doesn't mean we can't all dream a little dream of what we'd be wearing if we were taking our cherry-red beach cruisers (with basket attached) out for a spin this weekend!

    Whether you're just finding your cement cycle legs (Venice boardwalk anyone?), or are pounding the rough-and-tumble trails of Mandeville Canyon, we'd like to take a moment and remind everyone that looking cute should never trump being safe. With all of the street-style snaps of viciously stylin' ladies rocking five-inchers while pedaling away, it's important to keep this fact in sight now that summer is upon us. If your skills are pro-level, we don't want to hold you back — go on with your bad selves in those stilettos! But for the rest of us, well, we prefer a little solid grounding when we make that first push. That means a few things as far as our choice in footwear goes: A flat surface, a stability-enhancing set of laces (or ankle straps), and lightweight construction.

    The best part of all? Each pair that we've chosen here ensures that when you walk in the door to your destination, no one will mistake you for a tacky tourist. Click through for our pedal-ready picks, and may we wish smooth summer cycling to you all!
