A mountain biker was flown from Annadel State Park Monday after being injured in a fall, authorities said.
The cyclist fell while cycling on the South Burma Trail near the Warren Richardson Trail, Santa Rosa Fire Battalion Chief Mark Basque said.
Rescue crews from Santa Rosa and Bennett Valley fire departments were dispatched to the park at about 1:45 p.m.
They drove as far as they could along wide trails and then hiked to the man, Basque said. The area was too rugged for the crews to evacuate the injured rider so a CHP helicopter was brought in, he said.
The man was flown to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. His condition and identity were not available late Monday.
