The Santa Ana River Trail is a paved route that weaves through the heart of Orange County and is considered relatively easy. It also includes some compelling novelties like tunnels and a curve in the path where Angels Stadium is visible and reachable. Aventon’s Soltera is the ideal fit for this experience. Spry and lively, it features a nimble and polished design where less is made more by providing the simplicity of a single-gear function (although, a seven-gear model is available too). As always, wear a helmet!
