Jeffrey Manzan Owusu, The Greater Accra Director of Sports, was full of praise for Cowbell for their unflinching support to cycling which has spanned over a period of ten years.
“We all know the challenges government has faced with respect to funding some of these sports, so I am always glad to see Cowbell always at the forefront when it comes to keeping professional cycling alive.”
“However, we still need them especially at the grassroots level where equipment such as bicycles are needed to groom the next generation of national cyclists”.
