Santa Fe County firefighters rescued a woman who fell and struck her head while mountain biking Saturday north of Santa Fe.

A rescue crew was sent to the Diablo Canyon Recreation Area off Old Buckman Road just after 11 a.m., said Carmelina Hart, a Santa Fe County spokeswoman.

"They were near the river, so the crew utilized a [rescue apparatus] to get them out," Hart said.

The woman was taken to a hospital, but authorities did not have details on her condition.

Not to sound like the typical newspaper story, but I wonder if she was wearing a helmet. One expects to FDGB when mountain biking. Hopefully she will be OK.

Check spelling - don't you mean Diablo Canyon?
