How many of the club are interested in the Carten in 2018, don't think the date has been set yet, but for those interested we could start some weekend rides now club nights have finished Cheesy Cheesy

I'm up for it but I don't think that we will ever be able to better the 2017 experience - sunny and with the wind at our backs.

This will be on Sat 12th May - I have looked at Travel lodge 59 per room but may be noisy (next to Live Lounge) or Premier Inn Cardiff South (between Centre and Bay) which is probably preferable at 69 per room - this is on a flexible rate and can be cancelled the day before. I would imagine this will book up now the date has been announced so it may be worth booking rooms asap - what does everyone think?  Smiley

Premier Inn - http://www.premierinn.com/gb/en/hotels/wales/glamorgan/cardiff/cardiff-city-sout... - Room rates (including family rooms) are 69 per night which is great value for Cardiff and you can cancel up to the day before if you get a better offer!

City Centre Premier Inn is 98 and closer to the start but the South one will be quieter and is only a mile or two from the city anyway! You also don't pay until your arrival.

I've booked a family room for us. (Still not committed to doing it though.... Shocked)

I suggest if you are considering doing the CarTen, book a room on the flexible rate and then you can always cancel if you decide not to!

Get a room booked just in case as it's easier to cancel than try and find a cheap room closer to the time! Smiley

You don't even have to pay in advance - just secure it with a credit card!
