The REAL story is that the cyclist was clipped by a 4x4 that was riding too close to the bike lane. There were many witnesses (all riders behind the deceased), who all said there was no oncoming traffic, nor was any rider riding anywhere but the bike lane.

Antother tragety.

The paper said the passing vechile was not involved? Were you one of the other riders?

Anyway sorry it happened.

No, the paper does say that (actually a CHP officer said that). I was not one of the other riders, but according to the others that were there, the mirror clipped the deceased.
