Story

Stumps and Cranks is a beginner's cycling book for amputees and we would like to donate 500 copies to hospital limb centres and amputee organisations in the UK.The book is packed with stories, tips and information from some of the leading amputee cyclists around the world.

Amputees often have reduced mobility after they lose a limb and they may find the process of adjusting to limb loss exasperating. Cycling is considered to be a highly beneficial activity for amputees to help them during rehabilitation.

Raising enough money to enable us to donate 500 books to new amputees in the UK who may otherwise not have considered cycling will help us to continue supporting them along their rehabilitation journey. The author is putting in half the amount for this endeavour and the £4,000 target is the amount left to raise.

    Thanks Simon for your donation. The book has gone to Rio Woolfe and he is really enjoying reading all the inspirational stories from amputees in it!

    The author is putting in half the amount required for this donation so the £4000 target being asked for is the balance that would enable a lot more new amputees to learn about the benefits of cycling for their health and well being. We really do hope you can support this in any small way that you can. We are certain that amputees who receive this book will appreciate your kindness and generosity. And if they become cyclists when they recover it can only be beneficial to the cycling and disability community.

    We have just launched the fundraiser to donate 500 copies of Stumps and Cranks - that amazing cycling book for amputees - to hospital limb centres and amputee organisations around the UK. Your donation will go a long way to helping support new amputees get to grips with their amputation and provide them with the hope and inspiration to achieve a good quality of life after amputation. We will post regular updates on here and when the distribution of the books takes place there will be plenty of fun photos to show you too!
