Cyclist dies in Santa Cruz County

Cyclist killed on Felton Empire Road
On Friday morning, 8/11/06, Bob Hebeler was killed in a bike accident on Felton Empire Road in Santa Cruz County. Hebeler was a cyclist/tri-athlete.

The accident is still under investigation, but initial reports say Bob was
riding south on a corner when his bike crossed the double-yellow line and
hit the driver's side of a northbound vehicle. "Basically, he went through
a curve and the momentum pulled him to the outside of the lane," CHP
officer Grant Boles said. It is estimated Bob was traveling between
30 and 40 mph on the downhill stretch. The speed limit for the road is 35

Bob is survived by his wife & two kids. He was an incredible athlete, an
amazing father, and a wonderful husband. He will be greatly missed. Kain
Performance Team will be dedicating Folsom 2006
in Bob's honor.
