Getting ready to start this year's medical cannabis bike tour, valencia to barcelona arriving at the Spannabis

So, here we are, just outside Valencia, waiting for the tour to kick off tomorrow morning. Our base is a hotel in the middle of an industrial complex specialising in ceramics and bricks… well, the views can only get better!!
A hive of activity, the support team have spent the day picking up riders and volunteers from airports and train stations, who have been arriving from all over Europe and North America.
Meanwhile, some of the crew who got here yesterday have been out testing the bikes and getting used to the sun (It has been a long time for many of us!). So far, all signs are good!
The hotel entrance is filled with bikes and riders, getting busy (with the occasional break for refreshments on the sun terrace of course…)
Everybody is pumped for tomorrow, a ride of 130km through the orange fields of Valencia, before hitting some high country on days two and three
SO, follow us as we chart our course for Barcelona and Spannabis… The adventure starts

So this is it! This year’s Medical Cannabis Bike Tour is all set to ride. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we have raised €100,000 already.  This is double what we raised last year and a fantastic achievement!

The bike tour leaves from Valencia on Tuesday March 11th and will arrive at the Spannabis Expo in Barcelona  on Friday, March 14th,  where we will be holding a press conference.

We will be bringing live updates through the tour, so spread the word and support us!

Our revolutionary road trip has riders from across Europe, the USA and Canada. We have over 50 people on this year’s tour, a convoy of support vehicles, and 400 km of hardcore cycling to complete.

The ride will take us through the Spanish countryside, from the tangerine fields of Valencia, through historical towns such as Tortosa and up and down the mountains of Catalunya. Check out our daily routes here:

We have some exciting plans for the money, which will be used for independent medical trials to study how cannabinoids may be used to treat cancers such as glioma and hope to announce details very soon…

Keep supporting the cause. You are helping us to make a difference!
