The afternoon was sunny, warm and dry and quite windy higher up on the fells.

The Team was called out by the North West Ambulance Service to help a female mountain biker. She had come off her bike on the track above Boon Crag leading to Tarn Hows, sustaining injuries to her thigh and elbow.

Two Land Rovers left to drive the short distance to the casualty’s location. She was treated for her injuries before being transferred to the land rover for her journey to the Base, where she was handed over to the Ambulance Paramedics.

A total of 8 Team personnel responded to this incident which only took 1 ¼ hours due to the close proximity and accessibility of the casualty.
