My name is Stephen Burke, I am in Calgary and
I work with the Para Cycle program at the Olympic Oval. I am
also involved with the National Team and have been coaching
various Para Cycle athletes for over 10 Years now. I am running
a Road Camp in Penticton BC Canada from March 20-28 2009. I will
have a few amps attending as well as some riders with CP. If you
are interested let me know. Additionally the 2009 Canadian Track
Nationals are in Burnaby BC in August. Anyone interested in
trying the track should let me know as I am also headed to
Burnaby in Feb. 17-21 with some Amputees for a track camp.

My name is Billy Allred. I am a bilateral BK for the last 12
years due to a car accident. I am 33 years old and as an EX-State
Champ in wrestling I try to stay in shape. Now seeing as I cannot
run very often. I Mt bike 3-4 days a week around 20 miles per trip.
I started riding Mt bikes again about a year ago when a friend gave
me an old Trek 800(no suspension). Road that thing into the ground.
I just got my new Trek 3500 hard tail( but with front suspension)
What a difference! A friend gave the link to your site and it gave
me tons of inspiration. I wanted to see if I could send you some
pics for your site and maybe become a member. This is the first
place that I have seen amputees riding bikes. It lets me and others
know that we are not alone. If you know of anyone wanting to ride in
the Hampton Roads area please let me know. I go often and hard!
