Wielermuseum The Cycling Museum at the 'Polenplein' is currently being completely renewed. During the renovation work, the Paterskerk forms the new temporary decor for the exhibition 'Koers is Religie', where the intriguing relationship between course and religion is central. You take a pilgrimage along ten chapels. On the way you are hit by unique cycling wounds, victory glands, a Peloton of cyclists and the 'Croix de Fer'. By analogy with a church visit, a free contribution is requested for a visit. A wide range of public activities and educational activities are also available at the new site and expo, available at www.koersisreligie.be. The website opens with the campaign film in which Johan Museeuw can be seen as a smith of the Croix de Fer. Of all riders, he may be the biggest link with the themes that are mentioned in the expo ...
