Riding and Rock Climbing with ABBF

Firefox and Adventure Beyond Barriers come together for #EverydayAbility

By: Firefox Bikes

As we continue to promote an inclusive society and work at breaking the misconceptions around disability, we take the #EverydayAbility movement to Mumbai. With our guiding principle #EverydayAdventure, we believe that our daily lives can be made more interesting and exciting by using cycles to up the adventure and remove the mundane.

In partnership with Adventures Beyond Barriers Foundation (ABBF) and Volunteer4India we started the movement in Pune with riding and rappelling. With the great response that we received, we decided to push the envelope and do rock climbing in Mumbai.

#EverydayAbility movement, Mumbai Chapter, started with a short ride on the morning of 11th November. Riders joined the PWDs at Arun Samant Climbing Gym, Goregaon East. Together, they climbed. Together, they conquered.

As expected, the event was a big hit and almost life changing for the volunteers. Towards the end, everyone came together to share their experiences and learnings from the day. Events such as these are important to shape the perspectives of people and give them insights into lives of those who are different from us and yet the same in ambitions and dreams.

Join us and show your support as we take the movement across 5 more cities. Look out for our next blog for Delhi, riding and paramotoring at Flyboy Aero Park, Gurgaon. We look forward to continuing our adventure with ABBF. Thank you to the volunteers from Volunteer4India for facilitating this adventure!
