The real problem then was that no one actually saw me, we were spaced out so each could handle the terrain without bunching up. As rider after rider rode past, I shouted without being heard. I finally realized I'd need to get up there before the last rider went through and get them to see me. Lucky for me, I did. Took a lot of rope and hands, but got my bike back up to the trail.
    I no longer ride that bike. Still have it, need to sell it. The TW200 works well as I can easily step off it, being a short bike. A big reason I do not carry cargo on my small rack off road. I carry a small backpack instead. My rescue gear stays with me!!
    Thanks for the video!
    i have a whistle on my key... but that assumes i stay w/ the bike.

    I've since added one to my backpack. I think maybe I'll tether it to my helmet though, in case I can't get to my backpack. Picked up the tip from my ocean kayaking experiences.

    I usually keep a whistle on a lanyard attached to chest of my riding jacket. That way it can wrap around my neck and choke me silly.

    fred,
    from knowing you... i'm wondering if it hasn't already wrapped a time or two in the past?
