Cow herd conquers Amashova

2015-10-27 06:00

THE herd of 25 Cows, a fund-raising arm of Choc, conquered the 2015 Amashova cycle race in a mooovellous time of 4:57. The Cows had to push all the limits to get the “hefty” ice cream bike (weighing in at 65kgs), generously sponsored by Huberto’s Ice Cream, across the finish line, all in aid of raising awareness and funds to support the little super heroes fighting cancer.

“Crowd support was absolutely incredible and made us cycle faster than any of us had actually thought possible,” said Gordon Reid, the Ice Cream Bike Cow. “I cannot speak highly enough of the team of cows who pushed and pulled me across the finish line. I wouldnand#039;t have made it up Fox Hill or any other hill for that matter,” added Reid.

Iris Varty (aka: Mama Moo) thanked everyone for their support. “The encouragement, team spirit, cheers, applause and incredible welcome received by the herd from the start, all along the route and at the finish, was absolutely humbling and we would like to thank each and every one of our supporters for making this race a most memorable event.
