Happily, we don’t live on any of the hills featured in this movie short. But I definitely recognize them (and avoid them). “Russian Hill Roulette” is now several years old, and since it was made, people have identified many steeper streets. Now, nothing in it would make the top six list of steepest hills in San Francisco.
Welcome to San Francisco, and remember: going up can be difficult, but going down can be dangerous, so always maintain those brakes.
If watching this seems like a dream come true to you, head to San Francisco next July for the Seven Hells of San Francisco ride. I won’t be there.

And he’s gotta show off by upshifting on the steep hills.
Who needs brakes as long as you have a decent pair of shoes, right?
I have actually seen people do the foot-braking! They are crack-smoking insane!
“crack smoking insane” about sums it up 🙂
