CARTEN100 - we did it!

On Saturday 12th May an enthusiastic bunch of 17 cyclists (some more experienced than others), including Alasdair and Sarah, set out from Cardiff on a 100-mile ride to Tenby in West Wales. It was all part of Alasdair’s plan to raise £10,000 to support people who are recovering from strokes.

The weather was perfect, there were lots of smiles and we were ably supported by a team of five friends who laid on food and drink at various stops along the route.

However, we were reminded of just how hilly Wales can be as we trundled westwards. We made slow progress up several steep inclines but enjoyed the downhill stretches! Alasdair did a sterling job - cycling the 100 miles with Sarah and his friends taking turns to help out on the tricycle. All the time he was encouraging the rest of us to keep going!


The streets of Tenby were a welcome sight, and the atmosphere in this pretty seaside town was wonderful.


We rounded off the day with a group shot by the harbour and a relaxing barbeque overlooking Saundersfoot beach.

At the time of writing, the total amount raised is still increasing so we’re hopeful of reaching the £10k target set by the man with no shortage of ambition.
