A cyclist participating in a bicycle club ride died after a collision in Lancaster County. Lancaster Bicycle Club spokesman Ed Gower says the crash happened about 9:30 a.m. on Sunday during the club's Covered Bridge Metric Century Ride.

Police would not release the victim's name or any information about the incident.

Lancaster County Coroner Dr. Stephen Diamantoni said the 60-year-old man died of traumatic head injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Gower said 4,100 riders participated in Sunday's 63-mile ride. Now in its 31st year, the ride winds through some of the county's rural areas and passes through six covered bridges.
