The Complete Natural diary company will once again sponsor Tour De Picnic.
International rugby player Rob Kearney officially launched the eleventh Tour de Picnic this week alongside Irish rising singer Soulé – herself a novice cyclist and regular performer at Electric Picnic.
With Electric Picnic 2019 having sold out in record time, the Tour De Picnic marks the is your last chance that prospective cyclists have to see their favourite acts in Stradbally!
For those who don't know how it works, cyclists can make the journey to Stradbally on their two-wheelers, getting a ticket for the festival as well as raising money for their chosen charity.
Although the 17km run has already sold out, there’s still plenty of time to train for the 80km cycle! The stunning cycle route will take you along a Greenway and a Blueway. To boost you up before you depart, The Complete Natural Tour de Picnic will begin with The Complete Natural Breakfast Party in Tallaght Stadium with a special Tour de Dairy Menu to keep you energised throughout the journey. After departing Tallaght Stadium, the cyclists will ascend towards the Blessington Greenway and will continue on meandering through some of Ireland’s biggest dairy farms and the picturesque village of Brannockstown. The last hurdle will embark along the prospective Barrow Blueway before reaching Stradbally. There will be some much-needed sustenance along the way in the form of dairy treats and milk fuelling stops!
Tour de Picnickers will enjoy beautiful scenery and surroundings while raising funds for a charity of their choice: LauraLynn Children’s Hospice, Ronald McDonald House and ISPCC Childline. The initial deposit is €60 which secures your ticket as well as your place in the 80km cycle, provided you reach the fundraising target (this deposit contributes towards your fundraising total). Each individual must raise a minimum of €395.
