"Deja Vu" CARTEN100

CARTEN100 2024 had the good fortune to repeat the 2023 weather and the 2100 riders had a warm, dry day with a gentle following wind. The ride started from Cardiff City Hall and finished in Tenby Tudor Square, with the riders being hosted in Tenby Harbour at the Scott’s Pavilion by Tenby and District Lions. A free meal was available to all riders, as well as a well stocked bar to quench the thirst!

Pure West Radio provided the soundtrack to the day in Tudor Square, with the DJ’s welcoming the riders as they came into town, along with the riders families and friends who kept the cheering and clapping going all afternoon right up to the last arrivals in the early evening.

Relaxing after a long ride in was at it’s best with riders using the harbour walls to relax in the sun and discuss their achievements. Riders received a CARTEN100 snood for their efforts as well as an opportunity to get a poster or spare shirts and T-shirts.

Please have a good look at the photos on the above link, they are available to all for free, just download the files you want.

See you all in 2025. The date is Saturday 10th May 2025
