Combine motion by bike with peace and accessibility. Take a break at the churches and relax. Take the chance to gather more impressions of the environment. Cyclists can even collect stamps from the twelve churches. Each stamp represents something from the church that you can find out. A pilgrimage does not necessarily have to be done on foot.
