Saturday afternoon, a 60-year-old mountain biker crashed and broke bones on the General Creek Trail, according to the California Highway Patrol.
An area fire department helped treat the man's injuries. Because he was injured in a remote area, however, a CHP helicopter was requested to assist.
The helicopter hoisted the injured biker from the trail.
He was then taken to Lake Tahoe Airport, where he was driven to a local hospital.
