A couple of days ago I read an article about a mountain biker being stabbed on the trail by a hiker and it brought to mind a couple of lessons I think we can all learn from the situation. I shot a FB Live video sharing these lessons and you can check out the replay video by clicking the link below.

Remember that this isn’t meant to pass judgement either way or to get into the specifics of what happened but simply to look at what we can learn from a general point of view. Being prepared to deal with violence and traumatic bleeding is something we can all get better at and use both on and off the trail.

Until next time…

Ride Strong,

James Wilson

    Great post (as always). Having a useful first aid / safety kit is essential in our sport but it is never really talked about. It can be a challenge to carry everything. For me its: personal locator beacon (PLB) , snake bandages (I ride in Australia), painkillers, anti-septic wipes and now I just found out I should add a Tourniquet.
