Side hill OTE (off trail excursion)

Don't do this. The rider must have hit his bars on a tree and launched off the side of the trail into a pile of rose bushes & dead timber. He landed below the bike, and miraculously escaped injury. If riding solo, it would have been impossible to get his bike back on the trail. We tied a tow strap to the front wheel and hoisted the bike out of the bushes.
