Cows showcase ice cream bike at cycle event

DISTINCTIVE in their black and white pattered bovine kit, The Cows’ participation in the aQuellé Tour Durban presented by Bridge Fund Managers on 30 April has been given a major boost by the organisers, who have made available places in the second batch of the 45km race for contributors to their charity fundraiser.

Riders can secure one of these prized early starts by simply selecting a donation to The Cows charity on their entry, at an extra R50, all of which will go to The Cows beneficiaries.

The Cows are a group of sporting enthusiasts who raise money for their principle charity the Childhood Cancer Foundation of South Africa (CHOC).

No strangers to pranks, they have ambushed one of their supporters to ride their famous ice cream bike, wearing the furry Cow Suit and a pink tutu, for dodging his commitment to swim with The Cows at the recent aQuellé Midmar Mile.

Cyclist Michael Koberstein is psyching himself up for the challenge, which will be his fifth aQuellé Tour Durban, but, he says, probably his toughest.

“I have done the 100km race four times, but after being allowed to try out the ice cream bike on the beachfront the other day, I reckon the 45km in the Cow Suit and tutu will be far tougher!” said Korberstein.

He appealed to riders keen to do the 45km Fun Ride to pay the R50 for a place in the charity batch to be able to help push him up the hills.

Riders entering the popular 45km Fun Ride can still secure a place in the second batch by selecting that option in their online entry through Cycle Events.

Riders keen to up their involvement and ride in The Cows kit should make contact with Durbs Daisy at
