It so reminded me of my trip to France May 96 where on my way to the airport, my friend Vicki stopped at this small out of the way Chapel: Notre Dame Des Cyclistes - yes that's right, A Chapel Dedicated To Cycling!
Apparently the Italians had one first and as the local priest was an avid cyclist and the Tour de France does on Occasion Zoom By this area..well the rest as they say is 'la histoire'.
'The chapel includes a stained glass window designed and created by Henri Anglade, a former rider of the Tour de France, to represent cycling. It was reportedly intended to celebrate a thaw in the intense rivalry between Fausto Coppi and Gino Bartali, as they shared a bottle (bidon) on the Col d'Izoard during the 1952 Tour de France.'
