CARTEN 2017 is set for Saturday 6th May 2017 and is now SOLD OUT.
We are really proud to announce the JDRF – the Type 1 medical research charity as our chosen charity for our 12th official annual charity ride in 2017. To bolster your fundraising efforts SofaSofa and Resolve It, our lead sponsors, have both pledged to match every £1 of sponsorship raised for JDRF by CARTEN100 participants to a maximum of £50,000 each. So that’s an extra £2 for every £1 you raise for JDRF adding up to a potential £150,000 for the fight against Type 1 Diabetes.
You can manage your donations online by visiting the official CARTEN 2017 JustGiving website. We will again make additional smaller donations to other charities. Please visit our CARTEN 2017 Charity page for full details of our chosen causes and many ways to collect and get involved!
We have again arranged to start the event at one of the most iconic locations in Cardiff – CARTEN100 has certainly come of age with a start at the City Hall in Cardiff! With our finish again planned for the harbour in Tenby, CARTEN100 is truly an unique Welsh cycling tradition. With over half a million pounds raised to date for great causes, what other cycle event could be so worthwhile and fun?! Have a look at our recent newsletter announcing the event.

Each year we will open an online Event Booking form to operate on a first come first serve basis. Payment is also online, and your ride place is only guaranteed upon receipt of your order and payment. Once payment is received you will receive confirmation. Your shirt order and ride number will be posted to your address ahead of the ride.
Entry for new riders is £85 and this includes a CARTEN100 Cycling Shirt, the entry fee, finishers T-shirt, refreshment stops and other benefits. A CARTEN100 Cycling Shirt or Jacket is required to enter and must be displayed to ‘sign in’ on the day of the CARTEN100 event. Previous riders are members of the CARTEN100 club and can reuse their shirts from previous years. Entry only is £50.
These are professional cycling shirts made of hi-tech material. You can choose from a short sleeved, long sleeved and/or wind jacket. The cost for a short sleeved version starts at £35. Please note, shirts are “Race Fit” so are supposed to be tight but if you prefer to have a looser fit then get one size larger. Sizes provided on Event Booking forms are chest measurements.
Our sponsors and shirt designs will vary each year and we raise money via sponsorship from the Cycling Shirts to our appointed charity for that year. All new riders are expected to buy one of the CARTEN100 Cycling Shirts – this gets you into the CARTEN100 Club.
