Cyclists Around the World Called to Be ECO-Ambassadors for Electric Castle

If you and your friends are cycling enthusiasts and got the rhythm in your veins, hop on your bike and have a blast at Electric Castle Festival. It’s on us! Free full pass, camping & other goodies await you at the gate of the Banffy Castle (Bonțida, Cluj).

Radu, a 2016’s ECO Ambassador, arrived at the Electric Castle after travelling 500 km by bicycle.

What do you have to do to become an ECO-Ambassador?

  • Choose an eco cause to promote before, during and after the festival. Any cause from deforestation to ecological education. Are you already working for a cause and you’re motivated to support it in the long run? Even better, your chances of being selected increase.
  • Pedal to the Banffy Castle from a distance greater than 250km.
  • Be visible online, a good communicator and active on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). The stronger your ability to reach people, the greater the chance of being selected.
  • Own a smartphone/tablet with mobile data. It is very important to have a device with Internet connection to share media content (photos, videos, live streaming) during your journey.
  • Have a public Strava account / other biking app. It is useful for proving your experience in pedalling on long distances. You will have to use this account to track your journey by bicycle towards Electric Castle.
  • Have the determination to convince as many festival participants as possible to join the ECO program at Electric Castle.
  • Own suitable cycling equipments and bicycle for this kind of journey.
  • Be experienced and physically capable to complete this kind of journey in safe conditions.
  • Be at least 18 years old.
