Mountain biker hurt in crash
Published on 04/04/2007
A 22-YEAR-OLD man from Maryport suffered spinal and neck injuries
after falling from his mountain bike in Setmurthy Woods, near
He was with a group of work friends riding on a specially-designed
course when he came off his bike at about 6.30pm.
Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Team was called to carry the man to an
ambulance waiting at the roadside.
It is not known serious his injuries are. He was being treated in the
West Cumberland Hospital, Whitehaven.
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!
