In 2016, they set out to raise awareness and tackle illiteracy by going on a book drive for disadvantaged schools in the Eastern Cape. They started a digital campaign under the following hashtags #Cycle4Change and #ReadWithUs.

To date, they've donated over 2000 books and, are in talks to deliver books to Mauluma village in Venda.

On the 11th of August 2018 duo will embark on a 10 day cyclothon from the union buildings to the steps of parliament. Trekking through the pakka trails.
