Save the date – Sunday 7th June 2020!

With the year drawing to a close, it’s time to set some goals for 2020. Whether you’re a seasoned Smuggler or whether you’ve just started cycling, it’s a great way to get out and explore your surrounding area while providing a host of other health-related benefits.

We are excited to announce that The Smuggler Sportive is coming back for 2020. Entries will be going live within the next few weeks (late December) and we would love it if you could join us in North Devon for another successful year of The Smuggler Sportive!

Save the date – Sunday 7th June 2020!

Fear not, for 2020 we’re keeping the stunning route options, including those optional leg tickling booty climbs and Strava KOM challenges.

Also returning will be the inclusion of the pre-ride brekkie to fuel yourself and post-ride beer to relax those poor legs!

Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what a few of you had to say after this years event… 


Guys, thanks for all your hard work today, the Smuggler is probably the hardest Sportive in Devon but it can’t be beaten for a route and the feed stations. Bonus, all for a good cause. May the “Force” be with you 👍


I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful planed sportive, excellent food, well organised great day apart from the weather, it was a tough ride but we made it in 1 piece.


Thank you for yet another well-organised Smuggler. Everyone who helped set up the event helped on the day in whatever facility, food stops, marshalling, motorbike support, medics, bike maintenance, sign on, etc deserves recognition. I really appreciate all that you do and so pleased that your chosen charity gets a nice little sum for their coffers.


We will keep you posted when the entries become live on the British Cycling website!


Until then keep those legs spinning!
