Madonna del Ghisallo Chapel

In 1949, Pope Pius XII named the Madonna of Ghisallo as the patron saint of cyclists. Since that time, the local chapel in Italy has become a destination for Catholics cyclist. You can read more about it here. I have carried a Madonna del Ghisallo medal in my bicycle's seat pouch for many years.
