Inspiration for the Tour de France Pop Up Card
For cycling fans, the Tour de France bike race is the highlight of their summer. Many are obsessed with the sport after stumbling upon the race on television. People are always impressed by the thrill of the race. Give this card to share your excitement, and award someone who succeeded in a life challenge.
From Joshua Hunt in the New York Times magazine:
It is more than the promise of pain and glory that makes the race so compelling. Many bike races are difficult enough to push riders into a state of zombielike misery, but none besides the Tour have transcended the sport itself across 108 editions. One reason for this is that the race takes place in the world, not in a stadium, and its competitors become, however briefly, part of each community they pass through, slowly tying the land together into a national whole.
