Carten Raises Thousands Riding Out Taboos

Established in 2004 by a small group of friends, the CARTEN100 is a popular, leisurely bike ride that takes place over roughly ten hours. The annual event involves cycling 100 miles from Cardiff to Tenby and is a not for profit venture run by volunteers so that its nominated charities can benefit as much as possible.

Prostate Cymru was one of the nominated charities of the 2019 ride which aimed to ride out health taboos. The event was originally planned for April but due to the dangerous weather conditions of Storm Hannah the ride actually took place on 1st June. Despite the change of date, over 2000 cyclists took part and helped raise £101,244 for charity.

Prostate Cymru, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and Llamau, the three key nominated charities each received an incredible £21,000 from CARTEN100. £8044 was also donated to Marie Curie for their work supporting people with terminal illnesses including many forms of cancer. A series of smaller donations were also made to a number of organisations who helped on the day of the event including Wales Air Ambulance, National Association of Blood Bikes, Pedal Power, Kidney Wales Foundation, Jacob Abrahams Foundation, Pembrokeshire Action to Combat Hardship (PATCH), Tenby Sea Cadets, Raglan Boys and Girls Club and Burry Port RNLI.
