The Sheriff's Office says a bike accident today is a good safety reminder to people headed out on the trails this summer.

Just after 9am this morning, Marsha Waugh called 911 after her friend, 59-year-old Maureen Peterson crashed on theTabeguache trail. Peterson had to be airlifted to St. Mary's hospital.

The Mesa County Sheriff's office says having a buddy and carrying a cell phone is a good idea if you're biking this summer. They say it's also a good idea to have maps, food and water and a first aid kit. They say you should also tell friends and family where you're going and what time to expect you home.
