Milano to Monaco! Help Adam Shulberg raise funds for two fantastic charities.

 

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!

Is there a connection between diet and hearing loss?

On 04, Apr 2017 | In Food for Brains, News | By Jerusha Shulberg

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.

On 22, Feb 2017 | In Arts & Lifestyle | By Rosie Williams

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.
