Default WHOOPS! ANOTHER Mountain Biker Dies!

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lano...ings-heat.html

April 21, 2012 | 8:59pm

A cyclist died in triple-digit heat while riding on a mountain bike
trail in Palm Springs on Saturday afternoon, authorities said.

The cyclist was riding in the hills above the Araby Cove neighborhood
when he became dehydrated and collapsed, police and fire authorities
said. A paramedic with the Palm Springs Fire Department flew by
helicopter to treat the downed cyclist and pronounced him dead on the
trail.

Police are continuing an investigation but do not suspect foul play.

The temperature reached 105 degrees Saturday.
