Paramedic Sean Andrasik of the Ride Guides and Backcountry Medical Guides will lead a Mountain Bike Wilderness First Aid Class in Santa Cruz, CA the weekend of November 14 & 15. In this two day course, you’ll begin each day at 8 AM learning first aid for common backcountry medical and trauma emergencies while riding some of the best singletrack in Santa Cruz County.
This course is appropriate for mountain biking enthusiasts age 14 and up. You’ll need mountain bike, helmet, gloves water, snacks, enthusiasm for riding, and the skills to handle moderate terrain on your bikes.

If the photo used in this Bicycling Magazine articles about your post-crash injury assessment looks familiar, it’s because that’s my old mountain bike.
