WieMu, the national cycling museum
Trying to capture something so vast and dynamic as the world of cycling between the four walls of a museum is no sinecure. Located in Roeselare, at the heart of West Flanders, a region famous for producing some of the finest cyclists Flanders, Belgium and the world has ever seen, the cycling museum or ‘WieMu’ presents a dazzling story. One could say this is where the heart of the ‘Flandrien’ beats. The Roeselare Cycling Museum (Polenplein) is now being completely refurbished. While the work is in progress, the Fathers' Church will be used as the new temporary setting for the exhibition "Cycling is a Religion".
EXPO “CYCLING IS A RELIGION”
The Paterskerk (Fathers' Church) in Roeselare is the setting for the exhibition "Cycling is a Religion". The expo is focused on the intriguing link between the world of racing and spiritual matters. In the church you will have the opportunity to reflect upon fairground races, the cycling gods, religious cyclists, the superstitions of cyclists, doping sinners, cycling pilgrimage destinations and … the Tour of Flanders as a ritual gathering.
As you make your way around, you are sure to be impressed by outstanding cycling kits, victory cups, a peloton of cycling gods and the impressive "Croix de Fer".Back to Cycling Hubs
