CARTEN 2018 is now closed and another sell out. Our collective efforts this year are dedicated to a Ride for Simon.
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 eight hundred thousand pounds raised to date for great causes, what other cycle event could be so worthwhile and fun?!
We always launch the CARTEN100 Entry Form in late November via our newsletter some 24 hours prior to the website and social media launch. You can register now for our CARTEN100 newsletters by providing your email within the Newsletter feature on our website. You will then receive a ‘newsletter request email’ that you must click to confirm and be added to our newsletter.
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 £90 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. All new riders are expected to buy one of the CARTEN100 Cycling Shirts – this gets you into the CARTEN100 Club. Previous riders are members of the CARTEN100 club and can reuse their shirts from previous years. Entry only is £55.
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 each year. Please visit our CARTEN100 Charity page for full details of our chosen causes and the many ways to collect and get involved!
