An injured mountainbiker has been rescued by helicopter after sustaining face and neck injuries near Lake Ohau.

The 63-year-old Ashburton woman was cycling on one of the Ahuriri mountain bike tracks when she fell about 6.30pm yesterday.

A Westpac Rescue Helicopter spokesperson said the woman's facial injuries were ''quite serious'' and would take a significant amount of time to recover from.

She was taken to Christchurch Hospital.

The Ahuriri track is mostly flat and is used by mountain bikers and walkers. Just because one unfortunate women has an accident there doesn't make it unsafe for bikers. Any idiot should be able to understand this (including bitter old men).
