Milan to Monaco… Done!
Yes, I know it’s been while since my last update on the Milan to Monaco 2017 Quintessentially Foundation Bike Ride. It was full speed ahead at Cubex as soon as I returned, seeing patients and working on some new exciting projects that we will share with you very soon.
According to an international study in the Lancet, one in three cases of dementia could be prevented if more people looked after their brain health throughout life.
It is currently estimated that 47 million people are living with Dementia at the moment. By 2050, This number could reach 131 million people globally.
The study explores the lifestyle factors that play a major role in reducing the risk of dementia and examines the benefits of building a “cognitive reserve”, which means strengthening the brain’s networks so it can continue to function in later life despite damage.

We feel honoured and privileged to have recently partnered with the UK’s first Modern Mindfulness & Mass Meditation community, Just Breathe London.
Launched in 2016, Just Breathe is a fast growing community with a mission to make the practice of mindfulness and meditation accessible to anyone and everyone. The aim is simple, to create a space to breath & positively affect the cultural fabric and cognitive health of our city. It provides a place for community, connection & culture with the vision to create an oasis of space amidst London’s hustle and bustle. Almost a year later and now in full stride, the events, workshops & Grand Gatherings provide an opportunity for Londoners to step into less.
Mira Manek’s desire for healthy cooking combined with her love of traditional Indian cuisine led her to tweaking her mother’s and grandmother’s recipes to create lighter, healthier dishes and her first cookbook Saffron Soul was launched this Spring.
Having travelled extensively through India, Mira realised just how authentic her own home cooked Gujarati food was. She champions eating well and eating wholesome home-cooked food that doesn’t compromise on flavour, using the spice box creatively and not just confining it to curries and daals.
Indian food is an internationally popular cuisine, yet, unfairly, it is often considered to be heavy, rich and indulgent. With more people than ever before turning to healthy home cooking there has never been a better time for a fresh and lighter take on Indian food – one that Mira is creating with her vibrant and healthy cooking style.
Saffron Soul is not just a cookbook, it’s a family history shared through recipes that have been passed on down the generations, but with Mira’s healthy twists and adaptations and we are excited to be giving 3 lucky readers the chance to win their own copy of Saffron Soul signed by Mira!!!
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…

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!
