A bicyclist out on a group ride Tuesday evening died of an apparent medical issue, the California Highway Patrol said.
The 59-year-old man from Reedley was not immediately identified.
CHP responded to reports of a downed bicyclist just before 7 p.m. at North Piedra Road and Terrace Avenue in Tivy Valley north of Sanger.
CHP Officer Nicholas Scofield said the man was riding his bike with about seven other bicyclists when for unknown reasons he veered to the left and fell over.
He was immediately unconscious, Scofield said.
The other bicyclists performed CPR to try and revive him, but Sanger Fire personnel pronounced him deceased at the scene.
The man was not hit by a car, said Scofield, who added he believes the rider may have passed away due to a medical issue.
