Don't ask me what inspired me to do it but one day I did a web search for "bicycle religion" and I found this:
Matrixism - The path of the One
It's a religion based on the movie The Matrix (kind of like Jediism) that bicycling plays a big part in. Riding in Critical Mass is a sacred duty and Bicycle day is one of its Holy days. I guess the bicycle represents the proper man/machine/environment relationship or something.
I figured it was a joke because its just a geocities website but it turns out the website had gotten some decent publicity in the press and in academia. See this article for references:
So what do you think? Is Matrixism a viable religion?
