LEON, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a Florida cyclist has died while participating in the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa.

The Iowa State Patrol tells Cedar Rapids television station KCRG (https://bit.ly/2aEvFWW ) that 60-year-old Clifton Kahler suffered a heart attack around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday near Decatur. Investigators say he had been pedaling about two miles west of Decatur on Highway 2 when he was stricken.

Kahler was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Last Sunday on the first day of this year’s RAGBRAI, 72-year-old Wayne Ezell, also from Florida, died when he was struck by a pickup near Glenwood.
