Charity Bike Ride 2017 Archives - Cubex
Milan to Monaco
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!
