Santa Cruz County Highway 9 cyclist fatality

I was out most of yesterday and missed this sad bit of news from Felton in Santa Cruz County. According to the Santa Cruz Sentinel, a 50 year old man riding for the first time with a cycling group suffered an unspecified medical emergency on Highway 9 and lost his life.

Read more in the Sentinel: Santa Cruz man dies in Felton bicycle crash. I believe this is the first cyclist fatality for Santa Cruz County in 2014.

    Sounds like a heart attack from the exercise, first time cyclist on a very intense road…could be bad.

    My sympathies go out to the cyclist, his friends, and family.
