Making the most of the great outdoors
There are so many benefits to getting outdoors, it would be a shame not to get out and enjoy the weather and your surrounds!
In addition to the incredible and challenging Snowdon Push, we’ve compiled a list of activities you can do and places you can go to make the most of this beautiful world.
Magic Mobility all terrain power wheelchairs are built on extremely robust frames, so they are well suited to activities like hiking, bush walking and going to the snow.
You can also go fishing in your Magic Mobility powerchair, by finding a great spot on a riverbank or heading out in a boat. Magic Mobility user Nate, who lives in New Zealand, is having a fishing rod holder attachment fitted to his Frontier V6 All Terrain.
If you love getting out in the water, there are adaptive watersports like sailing, paddle boarding and even surfing.
Organisations like the Adaptive Sports Centre in Colorado, USA, have outdoor adventures tailored to summer and winter. These activities are mostly outdoors, and make the most of their incredible location. In summer, there are adaptive versions of canoeing, kayaking and cycling, and in winter you can ski, snowboard and more.
Magic Mobility users Bob and his wife, from Queensland Australia, love to listen to music and dance in their wheelchairs.
If you’re not afraid of heights, there are companies worldwide that do adaptive zip lining, skydiving and hang gliding. That’s an incredible way to see more of the landscape!
The Invictus Games, which are being held in Sydney, Australia, later this month. The Games can provide a whole range of inspiration for adaptive sports from archery to powerlifting and tennis.
