On September 20, 1996 Norway issued a special booklet of 8 different, 3.50 kr stamps in conjunction with the Norway '97 stamp show. The theme of the booklet is Norway Post's 350th anniversary. One of the stamps (Facit #1267) depicts a rural delivery postman on a bicycle.

The KARMSUND postmark on the stamp refers to an area, rather than a specific municipality.

From Wikipedia, Karmsund is a strait located in Rogaland County, Norway. The 30 kilometer (19 mi.) long strait divides the island of Karmey on the west and the mainland of Norway and the island of Vestre Bokn on the east."

This Finnish stamp (Facit #847) of September 26, 1979 commemorates the centenary of freedom of trade in the country. A man on a delivery tricycle can be seen on a city street.

Here is a souvenir cover of the February 28, 1955 French occupation of the Saarland stamp (Michel #357) shown on page 11 of this thread. The stamp publicizes the World Championship in Cross Country Cycling held in Saarbruecken. The special cancellation on this cover reads 06.3.55, perhaps meaning that it was applied on the day of the race...or that it is a forgery

This 2002 stamp honors Luxembourgian racing cyclist Francois Faber (1887-1915).

From Wikipedia, "He was born in France. He was the first foreigner to win the Tour de France in 1909, and his record of winning 5 consecutive stages still stands. He died in World War I while fighting for France."
