The Sunshine Coast-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter airlifted a trail bike rider from the Glasshouse Mountains after he fell from his bike around 10.30 this morning.

The man was riding with friends when he fell from his bike and sustained suspected chest and back injuries.

He was wearing protective riding clothing and a helmet which reduced the impact of his injuries.
