Transportation Thatís a Real Treat
By Michelle Sieling (Jul 24, 2009)
Bike trends tend to come and go. One year itís a hybrid bike, next year itís a fixie. But one classic design that has lasted through the ages is the classic Dutch bike, the same kind you might see being pedaled through Amsterdamís canal-lined streets. Often discounted for their heavy frames, these practical and reliable bikes move many of the residents of the Dutch capital from point A to point B daily without a lot of fuss. Bikes are used there by everyone for everything, in any type of weather, in any type of clothing. More

Funner Than Fun
By Jialin Luh (Oct 3, 2008)
As evidenced by reality TV shows like Life of Ryan and Rob and Big, as well as the proliferation of skate company ads plastered everywhere including MUNI buses, itís pretty obvious that the skateboarding industry has changed drastically from its beginnings to mainstream commercialdom. Though many have started skating hoping to achieve fame and fortune, there are still people in it for the unadulterated love of skateboarding. Local company YOURSeLF Skateboarding Co. was created for the latter. More

By Michelle Sieling (Mar 21, 2008)
The newest addition to the Bar Method franchise just opened this past January on the lobby level of Embarcadero Three Center, between Drumm and Davis Streets. Its location makes it a perfect spot for all the downtown workers who like to incorporate a workout into their day but are in need of an alternative to the small selection of basic gyms scattered throughout the Financial District. More

Making You Wish For Endless Winter
By Jialin Luh (Sep 14, 2007)
Spend your winters here and summers in the Southern hemisphere and you can ride the slopes all-year-round. Alright, so we may not all have the luxury of chasing snow, but we ARE very fortunate to have Mountain West, a cozy gem of a shop at the junction of Division and 10th. This independently owned and operated joint stocks just about anything and everything you might need on your next expedition to Tahoe or, say, the slopes in Chile, and itís never too early to start preparing. More

Nighttime Fun for Active Teen
By SFS Staff (Jun 11, 2007)
These articles are a mix of teen-friendly venues and events. They were written to fill in the lack of all ages venues and clubs listings in the media. Because there are not enough places for teens to hang out, they often end up at their friendsí houses or doing things their parentís would not approve of. With these articles, we hope to expose high school students to places where they can have fun and be safe at night. Note: These venues also have 21+ events. Please check the individual event to make sure it's for ages under 21. ACTIVITIES . Yerba Buena Skating and Bowling Center . Kristi Yamaguchi Holiday Ice Rink . Mission Cliffs More

So Easy Even a Chimp Can Do It
By Michelle Sieling (Dec 15, 2006)
Watching my eight-year old twin nephews bomb down the hill when I was getting my first snowboarding lesson on the bunny slope while in my twenties made me feel like throwing down my board and giving up. Why couldnít I get up on that mountain and fly down it as fearlessly as they did? More

Putting your best face outdoors
By Michelle Sieling (Jun 30, 2006)
Most of us city dwellers like to escape the noise and the pollution of urban living from time to time. For those of us who donít want to fork over the money to spend the weekend at a B&B in Mendocino, we can take advantage of the hundreds of state, county and national parks throughout California. For this reason, youíd think that weíd have quite a few places in San Francisco to buy gear so that we could spend the night under the stars, but that isnít the case. For some odd reason, it seems like every camping supply store is either in Berkeley or the South Bay. More
