Many amputees want to know how it feels to be able to cycle, and some even want to be professional amputee cyclists. The disability market offers many options for amputee cycling. This book shows you how to get started and take those exciting first steps on your way to a higher level of mobility and independence. This book offers practical tips and stories, imagery, photographs, and much more to help you or a loved one firmly connect with cycling as an activity that can be done despite a disability.

Sonia Sanghani from the UK, will tell you quite frankly that she has been a rather boring non-cyclist amputee for over 10 years. As a fairly enthusiastic beginner, she decided she wanted to read a book about amputees who cycle. Sometimes, if you want something you have to make it and that is exactly what she did. Her book is a compilation of cycling experiences from 50 amputees of all backgrounds and cycling ability. Some contributors are beginners and others are Paralympians; all share a deep passion for cycling and can?t wait to share that enjoyment with others. These stories are sourced from all over the globe.
