Quintessentially Foundation Bike Ride 2017 - Milan to Monaco

July 5th 2017
On the 29th of June, Quintessentially Foundation's team of courageous cyclists took to the long and winding road for the ninth edition of its charity bike ride, in partnership with Rapha Travel. This year, the gruelling four-day 500km-long Milan to Monaco itinerary saw 60 riders tackle mountainous terrain, in searingly hot temperatures. The vital months of training were well and truly put to the test, as each cyclist dug deep to work through the pain of sustained steep climbs and dizzying descents. Anyone who has ever competed in an endurance event for charity will know: it's the fundraising that keeps the body and mind focused when the going gets tough.

As expected, the results of this year's bike ride speak volumes about the efforts contributed by the Quintessentially Foundation team. We are extremely proud to announce this ninth annual charity bike ride has already raised over £450,000 for two incredible charities, the Miles Frost Fund and Resources for Autism.

One of our very favourite highlights had to be the final descent into Monaco, where crowds of proud supporters gathered to cheer the athletes through to the finish. The weary cyclists were treated to an exclusive post-ride dinner kindly sponsored by CNBC, where everyone got to fully enjoy the views over Cap d'Ail. A live auction included some fabulous prizes, namely a Team Sky special edition UK 2015 National Champs Jersey signed by the whole Sky team, as well as two half-price tickets for any of Rapha Travel's once-in-a-lifetime trips.

As Quintessentially Foundation takes time to rest and regroup, our thoughts already turn to next year's bike ride! Fancy joining us? Contact our Event and Fundraising Manager Natalie Voyle.
