About the Event

Info for Riders

RIDE FULL!! The CARTEN 100 cycle ride takes place roughly over a ten hour period as we take a leisurely ride from Cardiff to Tenby. While the main aim is to get people on their bikes, a benefit of the day is the money we raise for charity. This is done in from direct sponsorship for company logos on the cycling shirts and the CARTENers getting sponsored individually per mile. Riders are usually of mixed ability mostly new to this type of distance, so we encourage everyone to do some training for a few weeks prior to the ride to prepare the legs and backside! Preparation of your bike is also essential as punctures and mechanical failures tend to happen to the bikes which have not been in use for a while. In 2011 only 2 riders from 320 were unable to complete the ride. If you do come across any problem stopping you completing the ride the support vehicles will do whatever they can to help you to finish.
