Making roads safe for bikers makes them safe for everybody, says Alex Doty, executive director of the League of American Bicyclists.

"We often talk about a standard we call 8 to 80 - does a grandmother feel comfortable riding on a street with her grandson? If they do, then that's a street that's got it right," he says.
 
Cycling is on the rise in US cities - and its changing how residents get around and the shape of cities themselves.

Introduction
Last Update: 15 November 2015

Where should I begin?
Okay, I am a software engineer living with a beautiful wife in Seattle, WA. Born and raised in Kobe, Japan, I came to the U.S. in order to study Journalism. I somehow got into computers during my college years and decided to get a degree in Computer Science. That was 20 years ago. Here I am, still writing code for a living.

Cycling
When I began cycling 2 years ago, I was only going to ride around the neighbourhood for some fun. Well, it quickly turned out to be such a fun and addictive activity, I now ride 20+ miles almost daily - including commuting to work.

My rides are:

2014 Cannondale Synapse Carbon 3 Ultegra
2013 Trek 7.5 FX

Ingress
Agent ID: daihard
Faction: Enlightened
Territories: Pinehurst, Northgate, Downtown Seattle

Me and Open Source
I am a strong supporter of the Open Source principle. As a pragmatist, I recognise some positive effects brought by the so-called "walled garden" approach (as employed by companies like Microsoft and Apple). I still prefer having Open Source software on my computers as much as possible.

Here's my current environment.

Desktop: Dell Inspiron 580 -  Kubuntu 14.04 LTS
Laptop: Apple MacBook Pro with Retina - Mac OS X 10.11.1
Cellphone: Motorola Nexus 6 - Chroma [11-11-2015] w/ hellsCore b11-M

Formula One
I've been following Formula One Racing for over 30 years. The first Grands Prix I've watched had legendary drivers such as Niki Lauda, Mario Andretti and James Hunt. I was seriously into F1 in the late 80s to the early 90s, when McLaren was dominant but Ferrari and Williams were catching up. My absolute favourite driver is Ayrton Senna, followed by Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button.

Addendum
I write mostly in English, but you'll occasionally find weird, often garbled symbols and stuff in my posts. They are most likely Japanese. :)
