Medical Cannabis Bike Tour 2016

Sun burn, saddle-sore asses, aching muscles… it was time for true heroes to step up to the challenge of completing this tough 420km in 3 day ride. The target was the historic northern Italian city of Bologna, home to the Sativa Indica trade show.

Most unwelcome weather – heavy rain – made this a difficult ride for most riders. However, everyone had their eyes on the prize – finishing the 2016 Medical Cannabis Bike Tour on a high! And this was accomplished with everyone home safely. A tremendous achievement, with enough money now raised to get on with the business of some serious medical research.

Medical Cannabis Bike Tour 2016 – Day #3

,

The last day of the 2016 Medical Cannabis Bike Tour was a 140km ride to the historic northern Italian city of Bologna, where the tour was concluded with a warm welcome from the organisers of the Indica Sativa Trade expo. Riding conditions were some of the worst that the MCBT has seen in its short but colourful history, with torrential rain falling for much of the day. However, our intrepid MCBT 2016 riders, with a little help from the support teams, pulled together to make a final push towards the finish line. Arriving in Bologna in the early evening there was a great sense of relief and achievement. 420km completed in 3 days, many new friendships made!

Medical Cannabis Bike Tour 2016 – Day #2

The second day of the 2016 MCBT was certainly flatter than the first! However, this day wasn’t all plain sailing although the lack of hills allowed the Medical Cannabis bike tour riders to get up some speed, especially in the leading peloton. The route ran parallel to the coast, passing Venice on the way although there was no time to stop for romantic reflection on a gondolier! The romance was provided by overcoming the challenges of the route as Day 2 of the MCBT 2016 adventure came to its conclusion in the historic town of Monselice, a place linked with the mythological Trojan hero, Opsicella.

After the mountains of Slovenia today’s ride never got above 50m, but it was long – over 160km. It was a chance for the peloton to get some speed up. However, it was a tricky day 2 on the road, with 2 road diversions, lost riders and the last rescue mission of the day bringing back 9 people and 11 bikes in an 8 seater van!

Passing fields of grape vines, sleepy villages with cypress trees and small churches and, of course, excited inhabitants who looked on with curiosity.
