The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team have been called into operation in our area.
The team were called at around ten to midday on Sunday after a mountain biker found another injured rider on a cycle route known as "The Nomad Trail" in Guisborough Woods.
The rider, a 45 year old Guisborough man, had crashed some time earlier in the morning but couldn't reach his phone to call for assistance.
Team members were deployed in Land Rover Ambulances from the Team's Base and also from the Cleveland Klondike Bike Race.
Members of the public helped keep the casualty warm before the team arrived.
He was then treated at the scene by team members before being carefully carried to a nearby forest track by stretcher and then subsequently evacuated from the scene in a Land Rover for about a kilometre to Silverton Road where in turn he was transferred to an ambulance.
Sixteen Team Members attended this incident, which took around two hours.
