We’re delighted to hear from Sonia Sanghani, writer of the excellent “Stumps & Cranks”, a cycling guide for amputees, that her book is now available through the local library system.
Stumps & Cranks, An Introduction to Amputee Cycling, is a great book, helpful, informative and encouraging and, being a double amputee and a burgeoning cyclist, Sonia is able to write with personal knowledge and understanding.
Sonia also donates to the Douglas Bader Foundation, LimbPower, the Limbless Association and others who have helped through proceeds raised from her book so whenever you buy or borrow a copy you are also raising money for a variety of good causes.
We are extremely grateful to Sonia for her ongoing support and generosity.
Here is the information you’ll need to borrow or request the book from your local library:

About Stumps & Cranks:
“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. The contributions in this collection are written by some of the best-known amputee cyclists in the world, including Margaret Biggs, Rajesh Durbal, Mark Inglis, and Keira Roche. Their achievements are nothing short of remarkable whether cycling around a velodrome at the Paralympics or around the world raising funds for charity. This guide offers great advice from experts and ordinary cyclists alike for arm, leg, combination, and all matters of amputee cycling. The book includes tips not only on the vast arrangement of two wheelers, but also tricycles, recumbents, handbikes, tandems, unicycles, electric bikes, and more specialised cycling forms designed for the disability market. The 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.”
