The evening was dry with a clear sky.
We were tasked to help a mountain biker who had come off his bike in Grizedale Forest. He had been cycling the difficult “Black” trail when the accident occurred. We were informed that he had lost consciousness for a short while and sustained a head injury.
It was dark when the two land rovers set off. The cycling group were soon located about third of the way up the trail and on arrival the casualty was fully conscious and alert. He was assessed and then the laceration to his head was treated. He was carried by stretcher to the land rover for the short drive to the Grizedale Visitor’s Centre where an ambulance was waiting to take him to Furness General Hospital.
14 members attended this incident which took 2 hours.
