Montain biker rescued on trail in Montecito

Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office officials say a mountain biker had to be rescued this weekend by a team of volunteers.

The man was riding his bike on the Romero Canyon rail head in Montecito when he fell off.

A hiker passing by called 911 and the search and rescue team came.

They had to hike more than three miles up the trail before reaching the man.

Rescuers carried him down the trial and he was transported to a nearby hospital.

The search and rescue team, SBCSAR, is made up of all volunteers. They are on-call 24/7.
