What we do!

Every year we set out on an epic journey to cycle 420km through beautiful European scenery over 3 days.

We raise sponsorship money to fund independent clinical research by a team of scientists studying the medical qualities of cannabis. Each year the ride gets bigger and the message spreads further.

In 2017 the bike tour will write another chapter in medical cannabis history.

If you can make a difference, as a rider, volunteer or  sponsor, then come and join our grand adventure!

Sponsor us

We are looking for companies and individuals to sponsor the 2017 Medical Cannabis Bike Tour.

We have some great sponsorship opportunities for your company to be seen in Bike Tour publicity that reaches a worldwide audience.

Become part of a very special journey and help us to change history!.

The cause

We are a non-profit organization. We believe that the medicinal potential of the cannabis plant needs to be explored.

In 2017 MCBT funded scientists, working with GEINO ((Grupo Español de Investigación en Neurooncología), will begin clinical trials on brain cancer patients using cannabinoids (THC and CBD) as a first line therapy.

This is a historic clinical study. The research is independent, paid for with funds raised by the Medical Cannabis Bike Tour.

We also lobby for the equal rights of medical cannabis users.

Medical Cannabis Bike Tour 2017

About Us

The Medical Cannabis Bike Tour Foundation is a non-profit organization. We fund independent research into medical cannabis and support the legal rights of medical cannabis users. We do this by using a sporting event to promote our message.

The event began in 2012 with just two riders. In the years since it has grown massively and in 2016 over 80 riders and volunteers took part. Over the years, we have taken the tour to Spain (twice), Germany/Holland/Belgium and Slovenia/Italy.

In the past four years, we have raised 350,000€ in sponsorship money which is used to fund independent clinical research by a team of scientists based in Madrid. The money raised will help to fund ground breaking clinical trials into the use of cannabinoids (THC and CBD) as a potential cure for cancer patients.

  • Medical cannabis research

    We fund independent studies by doctors and scientists who are combining cannabinoids with existing anti-cancer drugs (see our news section for updates on the research program).

  • Legal rights

    Working with ICAM (International Association for Cannabinoid Medicines), we support legal efforts to achieve equal rights for medical cannabis users at The European Court of Human Rights.

  • Medical cannabis awareness

    Through our bike ride we are challenging popular misconceptions about cannabis, creating public and media awareness and bringing attention to our cause.

Why sport? Because it is a great way to challenge preconceptions people have about cannabis. It is also a great way to unify people. The bike tour is proud of its membership, with participating riders from all over Europe and North America. We are truly an international force!

Why medical cannabis? Cannabis has been used as a traditional herbal treatment throughout history. Today, there is much anecdotal evidence to suggest that cannabis assists with a range of medical conditions and scientific research suggests cannabinoids can prevent tumour growth and kill cancer cells.

Why isn’t more scientific research being done? The Medical Cannabis Bike Tour began as a result of this frustration. We believe the plant’s legal status in Europe is holding back comprehensive research. We knew it was time to take this issue into our own hands.

Last year’s edition was an amazing experience which I wouldn’t have missed for anything! It was a great way to meet people from the branch in a completely different setting.

We have had fantastic support since beginning this project and each year it gets bigger. Global cancer rates are soaring and there are real signs that cannabis can help. By using sport to promote our cause, we hope to challenge negative perceptions of the plant while raising money for groundbreaking research.,

It is very difficult to do an independent trial without pharmaceutical company funding in Europe, therefore we are very excited by the opportunities for research that come with the money raised by the Medical Cannabis Bike Tour.
