A Buxton Team member was walking the Monsal Trail with his family on Sunday when they came across an injured cyclist. The incident was reported and Buxton Mountain Rescue Team was called to assist the ambulance service.
A 40 year old female from Sheffield was cycling along the trail near Bakewell, when a walker stepped out in front of her. The cyclist swerved to avoid the walker and came off her bike, sustaining serious injuries to both arms. She was treated on site by ambulance service paramedics and evacuated on our specialist stretcher a few hundred metres to Bakewell Station.
The casualty was transferred into the land ambulance and taken to Chesterfield Royal Hospital for further treatment.
