A mountain biker, injured when he hit a tree and went over the handlebars, was rescued Saturday, July 6, by Stowe rescue crews.
The 28-year-old man, who was not identified because of medical privacy rules, was biking at Cady Hill Forest when the accident happened on the Florence trail, near the Zogs intersection, at about 10:20 a.m.
