Other Activity Options
If you’re not into competitive sports but you like to be active, consider handcycling, horseback riding, swimming, skiing or dance. All of these have been modified in some way for participation by people with disabilities.

Sometimes an adapted activity means using specialized equipment or trained instructors. Often, it just means doing things a different way. For more info:
