Pasquale Polo. Due Route È Vita    


Exhibiting in philately requires considerable effort, but for those able to participate or attend provides a great opportunity to extend their knowledge of chosen topics. Now thanks to the internet this opportunity is avaible to everyone in the comfort and convenience of their home.

There are several websites devoted to thematic philately, including those on cycling/bicycle exhibits listed here, most of them by Bicycle Stamps Club members with a reputation in the philatelic world. Thanks to them for sharing their efforts with us

Articles, catalogs, bibliography and more can be found in his website

An unofficial Bicycle Stamps Club Facebook group was created by Raymond V. See.
It's a place of direct contact among BSC members where they may share everything related to our hobby.
(Because it's a closed group, first you need to join Facebook and then request group membership. You will need to await the group administrators' approval)

Veloce - Le vélo à travers le timbre
Veloce is the first website devoted to cyclophilately. Not updated, it remains there as an example how internet can help to promote our hobby
