Dr Emily Newhouse cautions that 100 mountain bikers come into the emergency room with major injuries in Vancouver every summer, comparable to the amount of ski injuries in the winter. The Vancouver Coastal Health medical health officer is helping launch the Shred Safe campaign to remind mountain bikers to wear protective gear and slow down. Max Mckay (sp) says he has been injured many times while mountain biking, and calls on fellow bikers to plan ahead and not be reckless.
