CARTEN 2020 Saturday 2nd May
After announcing the date for CARTEN 2020 our HM Government have decided to move the May Day Bank Holiday to Friday 8th May for the 75th VE celebrations! The CARTEN100 weekend would therefore fall on a bank holiday weekend and this would lead to problems with accommodation in Tenby as well as potentially clashing with VE day celebrations in the town.
So we have decided to move to the weekend before on Saturday 2nd May when accommodation and Tenby will be more readily available. 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 one million 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 the 2019 CARTEN100 was from £85. This includes the Entry Fee, a 2019 Cycle shirt, a finishers T-Shirt, feed stations along the route and a meal at the Size of Wales Pavilion in Tenby Harbour at the finish.
Our CARTEN100 cycling jerseys are made from a technically advanced lightweight, soft and breathable fabric. The cycle jerseys have many features including elastic cuffs, silicone gripper hem and 3 rear pockets of which one is zipped as well as a full length front zipper. These shirts are normal fit, Not race fit, so choose your normal shirt chest size. See the Size Chart.
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!
