For me, it was good to see the township to get an understanding of what Qhubeka means for people there,” he says. “The trip left me humbled and filled with inspiration. I wish to bring that into my cycling, for the team to succeed and therefore to shed light on an important organisation and its goals.”


Qhubeka ECO projects, in partnership with Qhubeka implementation partner Wildlands Conservation Trust, provide bicycles to people across Africa in return for work done to improve their communities and the environment, including planting trees, recycling waste and farming food.
