A couple of friends were mountain biking the ‘Borrowdale Bash’ circuit around the valley. On a fairly innocuous part of the track above Seatoller one of the riders front wheel slipped on some wet rock and he went over the handle bars. The crash caused a deep cut to his knee and was bad enough that help was needed. The uninjured rider was searching for phone signal to call the emergency services and met the Keswick MRT team leader who just happened to be in the area. Team members made their way to the casualty site and after treatment stretchered the man to the MR vehicles parked half way up Honister Pass. The casualty was transported to the Keswick Cottage Hospital for further treatment.
16 team members responded (not all attended) – 1 hour 39 minutes
