Designed to be read by adults and older children or families it sets out the basic elements of equipment, instruction and points of general care and attention advocated by cycling and health professionals who deal with such aspects on a daily basis.

Not an amputee? Don't know any amputees but would like to see them enjoying cycling? Why not buy a book to donate to your local limb centre as a way of introducing more amputee children into cycling? http://www.limbless-association.org/index.php/directory/nhs-disabled-services-centres. Or arrange a fundraiser via your local cycling club to buy a book for your limb centre or your local library? https://www.gov.uk/local-library-services Read it - you might just catch that bug and want to try to help amputees discover the joys of pedalling around on two or more wheels.
