Hi i'm new to this site and i'm not sure if i'm posting in the right place or what not so if you find this at its annoying then sorry... I'm a below knee amputee and i really want to start cycling for a club with a team and such in my local area, Acton/Chiswick/Ealing. I've tried looking on google but can; get anything useful from it. Does anyone know where i should be looking, any clubs that they can tink of, any useful web links that i can try. i'm not particulary looking for a disabled cycling club just a normal one is what i am looking for. Thanks for any help.

    I live in Fulham and I have just started going with the Kingston Wheelers, based, wait for it, in Kingston.

    It's not that near to you, but very manageable to get there - head south through Richmond park.

    They're a big big club (400 odd members), across all abilities. Seems friendly and well organised - and they were heavily recommended when I was asking about.

    well done alley cat for getting out there and enjoy the thrill of bikeling - you might find some inspiration from BR forum member and world champ pokerface

    The dissenter is every human being at those moments of his life when he resigns
    momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.

    Hi, if you look on British Cycling web page they list clubs that are affiliated to them. I would think most road clubs are.

    You could also look at London Phoenix, we're internet based so a don't have a defined geographic location. There's a few of us in West and South London that are always looking for a ride. Kingston Wheelers are also worth looking at and seem decent bunch
