The Carten charity ride from Cardiff to Tenby returns this Saturday (May,7) supporting LATCH and nine smaller charities along its 109 mile route.
Carten 2021 was the ride that nearly didn’t happen. In 2020 the ride was cancelled twice, in May and September due to Covid-19 restrictions and then cancelled again in May 2021, but after a lot of work to make the ride as safe as possible, the ride took place on September 18, starting at Cardiff City Hall as previously.
On the road, social distancing was not a problem, but in Tenby, organisers decided a finish in the town square wouldn’t be suitable, so the finish was setup at the home of Tenby AFC, at the Clicketts. Tenby Lions and Tenby Sea Cadets both helped to make the finish work smoothly and get riders through to get food, drinks and collect their luggage.
This year, the charity ride will once again return to the town centre of Tenby on Saturday, May 7, with Pembrokeshire County Council authorising a road closure to traffic on High Street (from Crackwell Street junction) and Tudor Square between 1 and 8 pm for the finish of the cycle sportif.
The alternative route will be Crackwell Street (which will be made two-way under temporary traffic lights) and the one way order for both Crackwell Street and Bridge Street will be suspended for the duration of the closure to allow motorists to travel to the harbour and limited access to properties with off road parking provision under the direction of an event marshal or police officer. Pedestrian access will be maintained.
From the outset of Carten100 the two main objectives of this fun cycle, which is open to all ages and abilities, are to set an achievable challenge for novice riders to encourage them to become fit and enjoy cycling, and to raise money for good causes.
