Default ANOTHER Serious Mountain Biking Injury

So much for the alleged health benefits of mountain biking!



Mountain biker rescued after Heil Ranch crash

Emergency workers rescued a 22-year-old mountain biker who crashed and
injured his hip on the Wapiti Trail on Heil Valley Ranch Open Space
around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The man, who wasn't identified, injured his right hip, right knee and
right elbow in the crash, according to the Boulder County Sheriff's

Crews from Rocky Mountain Rescue Group, Left Hand Fire Department and
Pridemark Paramedics helped rescue the cyclist and transport him to
Boulder Community Hospital, where he ws treated for his injuries.

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!
