A 47-year-old Abbotsford man died Saturday night after he lost control of his bicycle and collided with a light pole.
The incident took place at about 5 p.m. on Blueridge Drive near the crossing for Discovery Trail, located west of Clearbrook Road.
Const. Ian MacDonald said the man was travelling east, down a steep hill, when he lost control of his bike and veered into a curb on his right.
The cyclist was then thrown from his bike, and his head hit a light pole. The man was not wearing a helmet, MacDonald said.
An ambulance transported the man to hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
