The Bike Shed in Barnstaple presents; The Smuggler, a cycling event like no other!  

This is a road cycling event that raises money for charity whilst attracting hundreds of cyclists to pedal all over North Devon, whilst enjoying food and drink along the way. 

It's a sportive that explores some of North Devon's most breathtaking roads, heading out to Exmoor and the coast whilst tackling the historic routes smugglers use to take to travel around the region.

The rides take in stunning alpine style climbs, jaw-dropping views and exhilarating bendy roads.

All of this is included in the entry price:

  • Free beer for every finisher
  • Free parking for the event 
  • Free energy food and drink
  • Rider insurance
  • Easy and full route marking

Routes are split into four: 80, 50, 40 or 25 miles. But they all start from Barnstaple town square. 

Aside from enjoying a stunning cycle through North Devon, having fun and meeting fellow cyclists, The Smuggler is all about raising money for FORCE Cancer Charity. Those who wish to enter for free can do so by raising over £100 for the charity. 

It all starts from 7.30am at the Bike Shed in Barnstaple, so please show your support how and where you can.
