Puzzle

To carry on from awuls critical reasoning thread, here is a puzzle for the weekend. This is less a problem of critical reasoning and more just a riddle. Many of you may have heard this before, so if you have, please refrain from divulging the answer for 24 hours, when I'll post the answer. But I suspect someone will solve it before that. Here goes:

A detective shows up at a secluded old house out in the desert. Inside he finds a dead man and also 53 bicycles. What happened?

You may ask yes/no questions. Good luck.

Never heard of this before, but I'm pretty sure I know the answer.

No idea. In for the entertainment.

Also, Carlotta will want to know why he was alone and no one had gone looking for the man.

Am I that bad? and yes, that's the first thought which crossed my mind.

It's not my riddle and I don't know the answer for sure, but if he did then I am wrong and have to go back to the drawing board. Awaiting an answer.

OK here is my theory:

The man was the leader of a doomsday cult which believed that gas and electrical powered transportation were the work of the devil and that horses were evil. Him and his 52 disciples went on a desert retreat riding their bicycles (the only approved mode of transportation).
After serving them the infamous Kool Aid, he gave them a proper burial then stood at the altar, said his prayers and drank the last cup.
