IMPORTANT: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: New Date 19th September 2020
As the cases of COVID-19 continue to rise, we are responding to the advice today provided by the UK Government and have taken the decision to reschedule CARTEN 100. Whilst we’d never thought this would happen for the second year in a row, as always, your safety is our priority.
With just over 2,000 riders on the road on the 2 May 2020, we could pose a potential and unnecessary burden on our already stretched emergency services. Since CARTEN100 began, these services have supported us throughout our planning phases to the main events, providing advice and peace of mind to all. We value these individuals and organisations and appreciate that they will already be working at their limits for the next few months. We don’t feel our ride is a priority under the current circumstances.
New date has been secured for Saturday 19 September 2020
We know that you have been training hard in preparation for the big day. However, we can confirm a new date has been secured for Saturday 19 September. All entries will be transferred to this new date, and if for any reason you are unable to make it, the current refund policy will stand and has been extended to 31st March 2020. For more information, visit https://www.carten100.com/ride-info/carten-100-faq/
CARTEN100 is a not-for-profit Ltd ran by a small, but dedicated, committee and over 100 fantastic volunteers across the 108 mile route. Once again, we’ve not come to this decision lightly and value every one of our volunteers, riders, family and friends and we hold a duty to ensure we’re not putting anyone at risk.
Each year, you travel from across Wales and beyond to support the ride and together we’ve raised over 1 million pounds for a variety of fantastic charities supporting individuals in need. On this note, we’d like to remind you to be kind in this uncertain period. Use your morning cycle to pick up a pint of milk for your neighbour, check on family and friends in the upcoming months and keep yourselves safe.
Thank you for understanding.
See you in September,
