Asphalt & Rubber Moves to San Francisco

If you weren’t too busy BBQ’ing it up this past Memorial Day weekend, you may have noticed that things around here at A&R were a little slow. Never fear, the rumors of our death were overly exaggerated.

We apologize for the lack of news as over the course of the weekend, A&R moved from the East Coast to the Left Coast, trekking through 10 of our Nation’s fine states. As of now, Asphalt & Rubber is coming to you live from San Francisco, a city with 3 major tracks and some of the best roads within sticking distance.

With an 11 month riding season, we have a feeling we’ll take well to the California coast, and the many, many roads it has to offer us. Look for us on the PCH and at the Sunday Morning Ride, and be sure to say hi.

    Dude, welcome to the Left Coast!! If I still lived up North, I’d look you up.

    But, one thing you need to know: stay far, far, far, FAR away from the Sunday ride. Not only do you actually have police escort a lot, but the truth is that the group is a mess of actual AFM and AMA racers, and complete neophyte squids who think they can keep up.

    You can imagine the carnage that that combination creates. Imagine putting the A and C groups from a track day together on a single-lane, cliffside road littered with gravel, potholes, mud, rain/fog and oncoming lolly-gaggers in cages.

    And carnage it is. They go right off the cliff.

    Get out before them, or well after them, and going over Mt Tam through the forest to Stinson is even better than PCH. Conditions are vastly superior and traffic is a fraction.

    Then, when you get to Point Reyes, head north out by the reservoir to Lucas Valley Road for some wide-open high speed work.

    Welcome, and enjoy!

    Btw., don’t miss Zeitgeist and staying up all night for the Easter morning ride!

  • Hard to find a better set of beautiful landscapes to put that seemingly endless supply of beautiful ribbons of asphalt into for almost constant use.
