There's nothing like catching a little wind in your hair while cruising around on a hot set of wheels. Make that two wheels, to be exact. Solé Bicycles has made a home in Venice Beach with a collection of the most colorful and cool bikes begging to be taken for a spin. Because seriously, there's no better way to make your way down the boardwalk than on a so-chic cycle. And when the package is this pretty, we don't really need much convincing to get a little fresh air and an exercise. Splashed with bright colors as well as sweet pastels, the new rides at the Venice bike shop focus on wheels that aren't just fun and functional, but also, completely in tune with your personal style. Mishmashed reds and blues? Got 'em. Crisp white with golden details? Done. Consider this a serious transportation upgrade before summer officially kicks off. Plus, making use of the awesome talent right there in the 'hood, Solé even offers up a limited-edition line designed by local artists. Save the gas money, and start peddling to Venice, stat.
