The US Special Delivery stamps once depicted delivery men on bicylces (before the bicycles were replaced by motorcycles -- to emphasize the importance of technology is shaping development of the US economy).

Portland, Oregon is my home and one of the great bicycle cities in the US.

My current favorite bicycle stamp is below. Interested to see what others can find...

Hmmm...

Kind of had a suspicion that Rod would blow the roof off on this one.

Just checked and yes, my local library has a copy of that catalogue available!

Here are the other two in the Giro set, for what its worth...







I don't have anything organized topically, but I have some more old cycling stamps that are probably worth digging out.
