Cycling through mountains and paragliding do more than just get your blood pumping — they break down barriers for persons with disabilities too.

In All In, we see how Divyanshu, who lost his eyesight at 19, is using sports — from tandem mountain biking to scuba diving — to bring people of all abilities together, shattering the myth that the spirit of adventure is impeded by disability.

A VR 360 story, which brings viewers on a scenic cycling journey through the landscapes of South India, allowing them to immerse and absorb the challenges faced by cyclists with disabilities, and the passion of volunteers who sign up to ride with them.

Through such experiences, Adventures Beyond Barriers Foundation hopes to create an environment of inclusivity, sensitivity and empathy for people with disabilities.
