The victim, who has not been publicly identified, was found with his bicycle next to a tree at the bottom of an embankment. He was pronounced dead at the scene, despite attempts to resuscitate him.
No other information is available at this time.
Anyone with information is urged to call Accident Investigator Gabe Cobian with the Oceanside Police Department at 760/435-4989.
This is the 16th bicycling fatality in Southern California this year, and the first in San Diego County.
My deepest sympathy and prayers for the victim and his loved ones.
