Bicyclist injured after losing control on downhill slope
February 12, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

A cyclist was injured Tuesday morning when he lost control of his bike while riding downhill on a Belmont street, a police spokesman said.

The cyclist, a 47-year-old Belmont man, was riding on a slope in the 2900 block of Hallmark Drive when he lost control and fell off of his bike at about 10:45 a.m., Belmont police Capt. Pat Halleran said.

The victim, who was not wearing a helmet, was found lying in the street, Halleran said. He was treated at the scene by paramedics and then taken to a hospital.

His injuries are serious but are not life-threatening, Halleran said.

It does not appear that any cars were involved in the accident, which remains under investigation, he said.

Police are reminding bicyclists that helmets can be crucial in preventing serious injury in the event of a crash.
