I tried to watch the 2016 Tour de France but lost interest after the first week. I miss the panache and personal style of cyclists from my childhood (now, I barely can distinguish one game piece competitor from the next). I much prefer the era of leather hairnets, wool jerseys, lace up cycling shoes, campy parts, and steel frames with chrome accents. In lieu of a $29 streaming media packaging, I’m going to browse through these vintage European matchstick covers from my favorite print ephemera archivist, Pillpat. Head over to her vintage matchbox and matchboxes set on flickr to pick your own team.
