Why do so many pro cyclists wear necklaces?

Some cyclists wear different necklaces for different reasons. For example Cadel Evens wears his wedding ring around his neck. A very popular necklace is a small medallion for the Madonna of Ghisallo or Lady of Ghisallo, the Patron Saint of cyclists. They wear this for protection and good luck. She has a dedicated chapel and climb in Italy that is almost always featured in the Giro di Lombardia. The chapel bells ring as the riders pass the chapel on the summit of the climb. This chapel is a very popular tourist site for cyclists as the chapel itself has a cycling museum that pays homage to all the riders that are no longer in the peloton of life.
