Festival-goers could earn themselves free Big Chill 2011 tickets if they take place in a charity bike ride in aid of Kenyan Orphan Project (KOP).

Dubbed, The Tour de Chill, organisers are after fans willing to raise £150 by riding from Bristol to the event site at Eastnor Castle Deer Park in Ledbury, Herefordshire.

Those who make the target will be given a free Big Chill 2011 ticket.

Tour de Chill aims to raise essential funds for KOP, allowing them to provide vital support to orphans and vulnerable children through health, nutrition and education programmes in Kenya.

Andrew Chalinder, Director of KOP said: “KOP is really excited about the Tour de Chill and the opportunity it provides for raising funds that will benefit vulnerable children in Kenya at a time when the region faces the worst drought for more than 60 years. Just think of the smile you’ll be bringing to a child’s face when those thighs burn!”

The bike ride is approximately 70km and those who take part will receive refreshments, a Tour de Chill t-shirt, hot showers and even a well-earned massage.

Camping gear and festival bags will be driven to the site ahead of the bike ride.

To participate the entry fee is £50 and those who register at The Big Chill Bar in Bristol in person will receive a free drink ‘The Big Chill Punch’.

Information on how to register for Tour de Chill can be found on The Big Chill website.

The Big Chill 2011 takes between the 4-7 August with Kanye West, The Chemical Brothers and Rodrigo y Gabriela with more to appear.

If you don’t fancy cycling, The Big Chill 2011 tickets are on sale now priced at £172 (including fees).
