When I first moved here from Canada, I marveled at the diversity of outdoor recreation available. When you consider the beaches, the delta, Tahoe, Yosemite, Monterey, Mount Shasta, Sonoma, and Point Reyes - all a short enough drive - I don't think there's anywhere else in the country or perhaps the world that can duplicate the variety and convenience of northern California.
With an endless sporting utopia right in our backyard, San Franciscans have no excuse for not taking advantage of its physical, spiritual, and psychological benefits. Need to destress? Go for a ride on some of best roads anywhere, climb a rock, run a trail or jet across the bay on your sailboard. The easy accessibility to the world around us is a big part of why we live, and love it here.
