Event Summary

Event Overview

Now in its 5th year, Bike Shed is proud to present 'The Smuggler 2018'. A cycling festival that will span the whole weekend, culminating in the traditional Smuggler Cycle Sportive on Sunday.

The sportive, which will start and finish at Bike Shed in Barnstaple, North Devon, explores the region's finest roads and tackles historic coastal routes exploited by smugglers of old. 

The route will navigate stunning and famous toll roads, climbing the iconic Porlock toll; a beautiful snaking alpine style climb recently tackled by The Tour of Britain, and the breathtaking Lee Bay toll road that skirts high above the jagged coastline, passing a spot known as 'Smugglers Leap' where a historic smugglers battle took place. 

Riders will be treated to jaw dropping views, challenging climbs, epic descents, quiet roads and the the finest North Devon food and hospitality to fill your tummies and fuel your engine.
