On October 4, 2013 the employees of Karachaganak Petroleum Operating (Kazakhstan) took part in the Aksai – Orenburg bike ride.
The autumn bike ride was a return one.

On the route the gas workers presented ten bicycles to the children from the company-sponsored orphanage in the Kardailovo settlement of the Ilek District, Orenburg Region. Five more bicycles were given to the children from boarding school No. 5 of Aksai (Kazakhstan).
