Presenter Toby Amies hooks up with genial prankster Marc Horowitz for a heart-stopping race down San Franciscoâ€™s steepest and twistiest street â€“ on a childâ€™s plastic tricycle. Marc conducts Toby in a 60-second symphony, before making him coffee in the park with the help of the worldâ€™s longest extension cord. Social activist Nancy Hernandez takes Toby to the cityâ€™s Latino heartland to meet street muralists and entrepreneurial kids in a gang prevention scheme. Toby joins environmental enforcer Sejal Choksi for a spin on the bay where they come face-to-face with the cityâ€™s hardiest swimmers and its laziest seals. Toby meets man-about-town Robert Mailer Anderson, whoâ€™s moved from welfare housing to a life of luxury on Pacific Heightâ€™s ritziest block, Goldrush Drive. Robert scores Toby a backstage pass and a private box at the opera before taking him to a robotics whiz, who helps Toby confront his fear of machines. Industrial arts guru Michael Sturtz shows Toby 101 things to do with fire before initiating him into the extreme sport of flaming body bowling. Michaelâ€™s friend, backyard chemist John Lieb, shows Toby how to run your truck on oil from your local burger joint. He then hijacks Toby for a night on the town accomapanied by a 30-piece anarchic marching band.
