Geelong mountain-biker found dead at You Yangs Regional Park

Emily Woods

A 55-year-old experienced mountain-bike rider has been found dead at You Yangs Regional Park on Tuesday morning.

The Geelong West man left for a day of riding between 8am and 12pm on Monday but failed to return home.

He had packed his lunch and was well prepared for the day ahead.

A spare key used by police to open his Holden ute revealed he had never returned for lunch. His ute was found in a carpark.

At 11pm on Monday the man was reported missing and police, Search and Rescue, Air Wing and SES searched the regional park for several hours.

About 4.15am emergency services made the grim discovery.

A police spokeswoman said the man's body was found on a track near the Drysdale Road carpark, where police had set up their command post for the search.

The death is not being treated as suspicious and police are preparing a report for the coroner.

The You Yangs are popular for mountain-bike enthusiasts with two designated mountain biking areas comprising of 50km of trails.

The Stockyards area, where the man was cycling, has a range of single trails and steep technical sections through rocky landscapes.

It's good that mountain biking is a "family-friendly sport", so that this kind of thing will never happen - except that it does!
