We saw an article with some pictures of the steepest hills in San Fransisco, the steepest among them being 41% grade, which is very steep. The article explains how to find the grade of a slope – it’s a level of math which I haven’t yet reached, but suffice it to say that the hill is so steep that gravity alone would accelerate a 1 ton car from zero to sixty miles per hour in 7.2 seconds on the hill.

It looks pretty difficult to ride bikes on or to even walk on, and I can safely say I wouldn’t want to live on this street.

    I agree driving a stick shift would be stressful. I’d actually like to walk/ jog this daily! I live in a hilly neighborhood, though none are this steep!

  2. I’m sure I’ve seen this in a film – possibly Thee French Connection?
