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…

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!

I have been having rather a lot of small gatherings recently, and for these, I love making a large, filling, full of flavour salad, with ample crunch. It converts a simple side salad into a main, complementing any meal or feast. The fact that it is always eaten up so quickly is as much to do with the yummy dressing (and lots of it!) as it is to do with the contrasts of textures. The best part of a salad like this is that you can add whichever leaves you happen to have or love.
We regularly share brain boosting recipes and yoga tips for revitalising a weary brain, but what is the connection between diet, exercise and hearing loss?
The old saying “you are what you eat” does have some merit, but do you also hear what you eat? According to some studies, there does appear to be a connection between the quality of your food and hearing loss. Exercise matters too, specifically in relation to cognitive ability and how the brain processes sound.
January starts with a bang but soon becomes a drag. And then February – a month of nothingness. Not the new year, and not yet close enough to March to warrant walks in the brighter air with a lighter heart. Before you know it, in walks Spring with it’s progressively longer days, medley of bird songs and signs of renewal.

Hearing aid technology has been researched and developed for over a hundred years. Throughout this time, hearing aid styles have gradually grown smaller, slimmer and less noticeable due primarily to the stigma associated with reduced hearing ability and the demand from those experiencing hearing loss. However, recently there has been an increase in demand for hearing aid accessories and jewelry that help make a hearing loss, which is often concealed, more visible and worth flaunting.
