italmostneverrains.nl

In 2008 cyclist Gerard Poels from Grave near Nijmegen started the site hetregentbijnanooit.nlitalmostneverrains.nl (English), to counter the excuse:

“I am not going to take the bike to work because it always rains (in the Netherlands)“

In the past 9,5 years it rained during an average of 10% of his rides, each of which took 17 km, 40 minutes each way. He counts every little shower even if it rains for just a few minutes. He claims it happens only 4 or 5 times each year that it rains during the entire ride.

 

On oktober 30st 2013 I held a short presentation for Quantified Self Amsterdam.
Yes! It is in English (not very good English, but I did my best ;-))
I describe the start and the purpose of hetregentbijnanooit.nl:
