The owner and creator of the Bicycle Museum, Philippe Tibesar has a passion for bicycles since he is young. He ride amateur competition since the age of 15 and in a time period of six years he participated in 200 races and achieved success. He just has one regret and that is that he never had a good guide to advise him to better channel and match the efforts that he made. In 1976 he founded the Cyclo-Club de Weyler of which he is the chairman and leader to this day. For almost 4 decades, around 50 fellow cyclists have accompanied him on Sunday rides around the roads of Arlon. Even nowadays he goes on bicycle trips all around the world.
Visits to the Bicycle Museum are organized by appointment. Philippe takes care of the presentation with enthusiasm and competence. From the most modest to the most impressive pieces of his collection, he can tell you all the details about them. He has polished, restored and repaired every piece of his collection himself.
