About the Author
Sonia Sanghani 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 go out and get it and that is exactly what she did. A lot of emails, phone calls, and typing later, here is the result: a cycling book for amputees. It is a compilation of cycling experiences from around 50 amputees of all backgrounds at various stages of their cycling ability. Some are absolute 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.
