Boulder police are investigating the death of an elderly cyclist whose body was discovered Friday night in front of the Diagonal Plaza.
Police were notified about 10 p.m. Friday that an unresponsive man with a bicycle was found on the roadway in front of the Diagonal Plaza, 2972 Iris Ave. A witness told police they had not seen the crash but discovered the victim in the roadway, unconscious.
