Fancy raising some money for Temple Street Hospital, getting some exercise & going to the Electric Picnic for free?

Join one of the most exciting cycling events in Ireland this year as the Electric Picnic and 2Wheels unveil a ‘Tour de Picnic’ cycling fundraiser to this year’s Picnic. In participating you will be fundraising for a very worthy charity, Temple Street Children’s University Hospital, in return for a free ticket to the festival, as well as remaining true to the eco friendly philosophy of the Picnic. Oh….and did we mention how much fun you’ll have?


The 90km cycle ride will leave Dublin at 10am on the morning of Friday 3rd September, with friendly experts from ‘2Wheels Cycles’ traveling with you all the way to advise and lead the groups on a protected cycle route along the quiet, scenic back roads to Stradbally. There will be mechanics on hand to help with any problematic bikes and ensure that everyone arrives in Stradbally safely and in time to enjoy the first beats from the main stage at Electric Picnic. Avoid traffic tail backs and enjoy the lovely countryside and fresh air en route to the festival. Your bags and tents for the weekend will be transported for you and will be waiting there for collection when you arrive at the specially constructed and secure bicycle parking site on the Stradbally Estate.
By joining the ‘Tour de Picnic’ you will raise much needed funds for Temple Street Children’s University Hospital, and it couldn’t be simpler. Log onto www.electricpicnic.ie for further details on how you can register. Once you reach your fundraising target of €500 you will receive your free Electric Picnic ticket and 2Wheels Cycling Itinerary.

All funds raised from The 2Wheels ‘Tour de Picnic’ for Temple Street will go towards the Neurosurgery Appeal to assist patients suffering from diseases or injuries of the brain or spine. These include patients with brain tumours, brain haemorrhage and spinal malformations or injuries as well as the treatment of some forms of cerebral palsy and epilepsy. The proceeds from this event will go toward the purchase of vital neurosurgical equipment to ensure patients receive the best possible standard of care during this traumatic time in their lives.

Whether you cycle to work or for fun, or haven’t been on a bike since you were 12…it’s time to get festival fit. Join the thousands of people who have been hooked by the cycling bug. It’s healthy, economic, environmentally friendly and most of all its fun!
Good luck fundraising… and Bon Voyage!
