Patron Saint of Bicyclists

For the who are wondering who the patron saint of cyclist is, the answer is non other than the Blessed Virgin Mary herself, under the title "Madonna del Ghisallo." We found the following information from Saints.SQPN (notes about your extended family in heaven):

Madonna del Ghisallo

"Medieval legend says that Count Ghisallo was travelling near the village of Magréglio when he was attacked by highway bandits. Spotting a image of the Virgin Mary in a roadside shrine, he broke away from his attackers and ran to it. There he took refuge, pled for Our Lady‘s protection – and was miraculously saved from the robbers.

  

Here in the Twilight, Twilight Zoo

We can always mention the lack of cycling infrastructure, bad weather, aggravating pollution and many other factors as reasons for not wanting to use the bicycle for our daily commute...

"As the story spread, the Madonna del Ghisallo became known as patroness of local travellers. In more recent times, cyclists would often stop to rest and pray at the chapel, which is a local landmark, and is at the top of a steep hill. After World War II, Father Ermelindo Vigano, pastor at the shrine, proposed Ghisallo as the site of an Italian shrine for bicyclists, and she was given as patroness of cyclists on 13 October 1949 by Pope Pius XII. The chapel has become equal part religious shrine, part cycling museum, with artifacts and photos from the sport. There is an eternal flame that burns there in memory of the cyclists of are no longer with us, and services each Christmas Eve and the Feast of All Souls commemorate them."
