CARTEN100 Spokes Foundation
Every year as part of the planning process the CARTEN100 crew consider the many appeals for support from charities across Wales.
2023 Spokes Foundation Beneficiaries - To Be Announced
“Making our miles matter by supporting the communities we cycle through along the South Wales corridor”
Our key aim is to work with local charities, community led groups and sports clubs who would benefit from our funding to make a difference to the communities they serve. We aim to support a wide range of projects with grant amounts totaling anything from a few hundred up to £10,000.
Will be announcing our chosen recipients in November 2022
For 2023 the Spokes Foundation will be supporting charities chosen by our Trustees, Sponsors and Stakeholders.
Who can apply?
The CARTEN100 Spokes Foundation will consider grants to charities, community groups and sports clubs along the route of the CARTEN100 but also from Gwent, so covering the whole of South Wales.
We will not support grants to individuals.

How you can help!
CARTEN100 has two main objectives, to set an achievable challenge for novice riders to encourage them to become fit and enjoy cycling, and to raise money for good causes – in 2018 we celebrated a million pounds raised.
