Martyrs, Prophets, Saints and Shrines

The Bike Temple is busy putting the finishing touches on our first piece of Mobile Religious Equipment, the Mobile Shrine.The main purpose of the Mobile Shrine is to recognize and pay tribute to the bicycle and those who have made great contributions and sacrifices toward it's advancement in society. This will include those who have fallen from the saddle (martyrs), those who have made it their life's mission to promote and safe and pleasant legitimize cycling (saints), and those who have worked to educate and inform the general public about the benefits of the bicycle (prophets). We intend to pay tribute to these people through the use of photographs and stories.

Do you have a favorite cycling martyr, prophet or saint that you would like to nominate for the shrine? Let us know in the comments.


  1. Sheldon Brown was a Prophet

  2. To Dinh Trung was the best of the bike martyrs, hands down. I mean, this isn't even debatable. Sheldon Brown has got nothing on the "Trungsternator!"
