Default ANOTHER Serious Mountain Biking Injury

So much for the alleged health benefits of mountain biking!



Mountain biker rescued after fall in the Boise Foothills

Edition Date: 06/26/08

Ada County rescue workers airlifted a woman out of steep terrain in
the Boise Foothills about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday after she crashed on her
mountain bike.

The Ada County Sheriff's Office said three women were riding together
on the Red Cliff trail when one of the riders fell and sustained
serious but non-life-threatening injuries, mostly to her face.

The two other women used cell phones to call for help when it was
determined their friend couldn't make it out on her own.

The woman crashed on a steep section of the trail, which made getting
to her difficult.

An Ada County Sheriff's deputy on a dirt bike was the first to arrive
on the scene, officials said. He directed Ada County paramedics on
foot to the crash scene, where they called for an air ambulance to
transport the woman to a Boise hospital.
I am working on creating wildlife habitat that is off-limits to
humans ("pure habitat"). Want to help? (I spent the previous 8
years fighting auto dependence and road construction.)

Please don't put a cell phone next to any part of your body that you are fond of!
