Hi,
does anyone know what was happening on the SE bikepath this morning???

The police had it blocked off with no access either east or west.

When I crossed at mc rob bridge you could see a body on the path with a sheet covering it......

Hope it was not a rider, it looked very serious.

Heard nothing so far, it could of been non-cycling related. If that's any recompense. :(

This is a somewhat reluctant post... but I have been trying to find out the outcome of the fellow all day to no avail. Why reluctant? Because recently when someone posted a 'rider down' post I spent a frantic time trying to contact my sweetie who was training with the rider who was injured. I guess many of us could point to main cycling/training areas and say "I hope it isn't [insert name]" or "that sounds like [name]".

I was leaving the city and stopped at a small group of cyclists and runners; someone was being attended to by some people who had stopped for first aid. (I got this info from a young woman whose running partner was one of the first aiders. I have a basic first aid qual and was checking that it wasn't needed.) I have no idea what had happened before getting there; nor did the woman I spoke with. Someone was calling an ambulance. I rode up the track a little to warn others that the path was blocked ahead so they could slow down until I saw the police and heard the ambulance arriving shortly after.

As the OP said, on the return trip to the city the police were diverting people from the path. I hope that the outcome for the injured - whatever they were doing on the path - has been ok. We all have family and friends who expect us home at the end of the day - my thoughts are with both the injured and those who care for him.

The latest I hear via 3AW, was the incident was a cyclist who suffered a fatal heart attack, no suspicious circumstances. :(
