Tenby will play host to 1,800 riders cycling from Cardiff to the seaside town this weekend, for the 20th anniversary of the special charity Carten event.

Carten is a unique 107 mile bike ride from the Welsh capital to the seaside town held annually in May.

Pembrokeshire County Council have announced that High Street and Tudor Square in Tenby will be closed to vehicles from 12 noon to 8 pm for the event which takes place on Saturday, May 11.

This is so that the finish of the cycle event can take place in a traffic free environment.

Access to and from the harbour/St Julian Street area will be via Crackwell Street which will be under traffic light control.

Friends and families will be able to cheer those taking part in safely, before they head down to the harbour to the finish pavilion to collect their finishers T-shirt and complimentary meal as well as well deserved refreshments at the longest bar in Tenby!

The start of the Carten is from one of the most iconic locations at Cardiff City Hall.

Riders are free to leave when ready, with be a rolling start from 7.30 am, which will take about an 90 minutes to complete, so no hurry.

The majority of riders this year are fundraising for the Noah's Ark Children's Hospital Charity.

“Last year the event raised an incredible £40,000 and we are hoping to exceed that this year!” said Morgan Bolton of Noah's Ark Children’s Hospital Charity.

“Our youngest rider is 14-year-old William Newton who is taking part in the cycle for his young cousin, Evie, who has been treated at the Noah's Ark Children's Hospital since she was newborn.”
