INCLUSIVE TANDEM CYCLING EXPEDITION—MANALI 2 KHARDUNGLA
#M2K2018 is India’s only inclusive tandem cycling expedition where people with and without disability cycle together to build empathy.

How would you like to enable blind and amputee cyclists, alongside able-bodied riders, to take on a challenge that the world told them was impossible? Adventures Beyond Barriers Foundation (ABBF) is endeavouring to take cyclists with and without disability on an inclusive tandem-cycling expedition from Manali to Khardung La---the highest motorable road in the world. Last year, we took to the mountains with nine cyclists with disability and 23 able-bodied riders. All our participants completed the expedition and stood proud on top of the world at 18,380 feet. Our accomplishment made history too (see our media coverage here and our last year's funding campaign here) and this year, we are all set to do it again with your support.


We need you to donate to the epic cause of making this world a more inclusive and empathetic space by contributing generously to this campaign. What more? You can save taxes while changing the world too—for all your donations, you will get an 80G certificate that will give you tax exemption.


About M2K2018: From August 18--30, ABBF is all set to push even higher boundaries than last year by taking a team of 25 people, with and without disability, on a cycling expedition from Manali to Khardung-La in Ladakh. During these 11 days, cyclists will push the limits of physical endurance and mental fortitude, forge relationships and build empathy. At its core, #M2K2018 is the chance for people to discover new perspectives, while simultaneously spreading the message of inclusion and accessibility. Everyone wins. Everyone goes home stronger. Everyone gets to live harder.


How will we use your donations for #M2K2018: Your donations will help us provide for all our cyclists' accommodations, food, living expenses, costs of maintaining the tandem cycles, support vehicles and medical necessities, as well as the expenditure of our practice sessions throughout the months leading up to the event. Your funds will also fund our cyclists with disability who are from poor economic backgrounds, while helping us raise money for our future events this year.


We need you to support our goal of making this expedition a success. By donating as much as you can, you are helping truly imbibe the spirit of inclusion while adopting a new world view. Join us in this adventure, be a vanguard in this revolution and help change the way disability is perceived in society today.


About ABBF: ABBF is a not for profit, that promotes inclusion by enabling Persons with Disability and able-bodied individuals to participate in adventure sports together. The underlying philosophy is that “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”
