About Me

Hi and welcome to my new blog! My name is David Hutchings. I’m originally from Orlando Florida but I’ve spent a good part of my life in Hawaii and the last 5 years in Japan. As I was exploring the culture  and popular activities in Japan I caught cycling fever, more specificaly  Japanese Keirin style track racing. So I decided to create this blog to keep up with others who share the same interest, enthusiasm, and passion for single speed racing as I do. Please feel free to comment , share, contact, agree, dissagree, plug your cycling related products and make general conversation. I look forward to hearing from members of  the cycling community from all over the world. Cheers!

    こんにちわ ディビット・ハっチングさん
    ブログの開設、おめでとうそしてありがとうございます

    私は今後このブログが日本とハワイとの「競輪,ケイリン、Keirin」の架橋になることを祈っております

    遠くハワイの地からも自転車事情を発信して下さい
    そうすれば日本とハワイの距離がより近くなる事でしょう

    ハワイのKeirin fanによろしく!!

  2. Hi Mr.David Hutchings,

    Congratulations thank you for the establishment of this blog.
    I pray that this blog become constructing a bridge that is better than Hawaii and Japan’s.

    Please send information on the bicycle from Hawaii far from Japan.
    As for it, Japan will become near with the distance of Hawaii.

    Please contact me about your activities.
    I am an agent for professional track cyclists.
    My main focus is in the Six Day Races
    But my long range objective is to develop Americans
    for application and consideration to Keirin School.
    I have several former Keirin Professionals involved
    with my agency.

    Thanks

    • Aloha Patrick! Thank you for stopping by my blog. As you can already tell im passionate about Keirin race and i forsee a future developing for US competitors…the Japanese have a huge advantage as they begin formal training young whereas we dont have such opportunities here in the States. But anything is possible for those who can envision it, so i am certainly interested in talking with you. I have recently settled into life in hawaii after moving from Kawasaki Japan. i will send you an email so that we can speak directly regarding your vision for the future of Keirin. Mahalo!

    Aloha David,
    My name is Eddie and I’m from Hawai’i. I’m am a triathlete and road cyclist, but recently built a fixed gear for off-season training. After getting into my fixed gear, I went searching online and came upon the Japanese keirin. I was instantly hooked in wanting to compete! My mother is from Japan and I am looking to live there for a year to hopefully watch a live keirin race and see the Keirin School (and maybe try to apply to the school! Haha, that would be an amazing experience).
    I would love to support you in encouraging others in Hawai’i to build a velodrome. I know plenty of teens and serious cyclists who would like to have a designated place where all can experience the fun and excitement of high speed, high adrenaline, non-stop cycling action!
    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Mahalo,
    Eddie T.
