Clubs for stamp collectors:
MFN - Motor Filatelisten Nederland (NL) The Dutch Motorcycle Philatelists Club was founded in 1987 and has about 90 members (2017). The little difference to the theme of this website is, that their bicycles have an auxiliary drive. Many articles in their quarterly newspaper are also relevant for collectors of “big bike”.
Bicycle Stamps Collectors:
The fietslatelist - blog on postzegelblog.nl (NL) Jan van Tellingen: Cyclist and bicycle stamp collector from the early 1980's until 2016. Designed several Dutch personalized stamps.
Fiets-miniatuuren (NL) Jan van Tellingen: collector of bicycle miniatures, post cards, posters or reproductions thereof and bicycle stamps - from the early 1980's until 2016. One of the best websites. You can spend hours scrolling down this site.
The fietsfilatelist - Piet Hein Hilarides author of various bicycle stamps catalogs and active bicycle tourist.
Bicycle Stamps – Cycling Events (poepperl . de) Günther Pöpperl, retired from collecting bicycle stamps. This might be the reason that this website is unfortunately not updated any more since 2013 - here Lance Armstrong is still winner of the Tour de France. A pity.
PhilaSeiten forum (D) morsels from philatelists - it seems as if most of them are not bicycle stamps collectors

Bicycle Stamps Club on facebook. This group of approximately 40 members (summer 2017) was initiated by Raymond See in 2011. The aim was to attract younger people to the topic of bicycle stamps collecting and to document the work done by members of the Bicycle Stamp Club for future generations. At the moment (spring 2017) it is a one man show by Michel Lesueur with approx. a dozen spectators: nice picture composites showing enlarged details of the bicycle on the item.
