I remember being able to ride my bike down the hill on 13th St. If you hit the first light right and pedaled as hard as you could, you could hit green lights until you lost your speed boost.

Climbing up thirteenth street, though, my goodness. I do not know how many times I looked up the street, saw the hill, and went around.
