Charity Bike Ride 2017 Archives - Cubex
It’s finally almost here. On Wednesday I fly to Milan and it begins.
Training has been a blast. I have cycled some amazing routes, enjoyed beautiful countryside, met wonderful people, felt elation and also some doubt, but never felt like giving up the journey.
Milan to Monaco: 14 days to go!
When I started this journey, it was not the physical challenge that scared me. What worried me was not being able to reach my target of £5,000 for these amazing charities – The Miles Frost Fund in partnership with the British Heart Foundation and Resources for Autism.
Milan to Monaco: 22 days to go!
I cannot believe that it is only 22 days until I leave for Italy and the 2017 Quintessentially Foundation Bike Ride in partnership with Rapha Travel.
So far so good! Training is going well and apart from a few bumps, bruises, aches and pains is on schedule. Getting knocked off my bike by a bus on Kensington High Street was a bit of a blow but all seems OK now.
I have enjoyed getting to know my fellow cyclists at the training rides, run by Rapha in Central London and Surrey. There is a wonderful team spirit and I have met some incredible people during these sessions and look forward to their camaraderie.
Onwards and upwards…

Adam Shulberg is participating in the 2017 Quintessentially Foundation Bike Ride in partnership with Rapha Travel.
I was recently asked by a friend to participate in a long distance bike ride to raise funds for two amazing charities: The Miles Frost Fund in partnership with the British Heart Foundation and Resources for Autism.
It’s been a while since I was in the saddle, 12 years actually. For some reason I thought this might be good idea and trundled down to the garage to get my “light as air” BMC Carbon Road bike. Unfortunately someone had beaten me to it and all that was left was a pump. I was upset! Actually, upset is an understatement as this bike was special, designed and ridden by an ex Tour de France winner, it is irreplaceable but…..
Not to be completely undone I located my (not so light) 1996 Steel Condor bicycle, cleaned it up and took it for a ride. I could not understand why I ever stopped cycling. That feeling of freedom, wind in your hair is just irreplaceable. Pure pleasure, with just a bit of pain!
