Mountain biker lucky to survive 20m fall

A MOUNTAIN biker had a lucky escape after he fell 20 metres while riding in Stromlo Forest yesterday.

The 35-year-old man sustained serious injuries to his face, head and back from the fall. The ACT Ambulance Service deployed its specialised four-wheel-drive ambulance to retrieve and treat the man, who was transported to the Canberra Hospital in a stable condition.

The tracks at Stromlo Forest have been described as rocky and gruelling by mountain bikers.
