Hellyer Velodrome

Hellyer Velodrome

San Jose’s cycling pedigree has been conditioned and refined for well over a century. The South Bay enjoys a special type of pragmatism, which translates into our cycling history; so, while we may not be fielding a top contender in any of this year’s Tours, Giros or Classics, a large number of fine athletes will be using equipment and financing born and raised right here.

Clubman’s All-British Motorcycle Show and Swap Meet

Clubman’s All-British Motorcycle Show and Swap Meet

There is something very special about British motorcycles, especially the ones made prior to the 1970s. England produced the most exciting motorcycles in the world during the first half of the last century. Some people may disagree that point, but those folks have probably never seen a HRD Brough Superior (1924) or a Vincent Black Shadow (1948) in action.

Touchstone has taken up residence in the old Studio Theatre building on the corner of South First and San Salvador.

All Star Academy in Santa Clara

Baseball has been called “America’s Game,” and for a good reason; no other country has taken the sport to heart like the United States. The definite origins of the sport are hazy; and most likely, humans have been hitting things with sticks competitively since the dawn of time.

Motor Show Features New Rides

Motor Show Features New Rides

Last weekend’s Silicon Valley International Motor Show featured the big guns of the auto industry and some surprising guests. The automobiles on display gave potential consumers the opportunity to sample hundreds of options without having to visit an auto mall.

Indoor Race Venue Offers Sense of Speed

Indoor Race Venue Offers Sense of Speed

Few people have witnessed any form of closed-track racing and pondered the question, “Why would anyone ever do this?” Generally, the sight of race cars zooming around corners produces a sense of excitement—along with a feeling of “I wanna do that!” Racing is infections, and few can withstand its temptation.

Closed-track racing is, however, unattainable for average folks. It is very expensive and requires a tremendous investment of time. This is why most people opt to purchase an aftermarket muffler and some faux-carbon trim for their daily drive instead of investing in a real race car.
