Twin Peaks offers a stunning view out over downtown San Francisco – or really, just about any part of the city. You might have get off your bike and clamber up to the top of the actual peaks for the best view, but the vista point isn’t half bad either. Mount Davidson is higher, but it’s both illegal and very difficult to bike up the rocky, steep, single-track trails. Twin Peaks also offers a better view of nearby Mount Sutro, as the latter is heavily wooded by invasive eucalyptus. If you’re going climb some hills, why stop at one — bike the twins.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
