Banora cyclist dies in hospital

A BANORA Point man has died in hospital a week after a serious mountain bike fall in South-East Queensland.

The 49-year-old, who has not yet been named by police, succumbed to spinal injuries in Princess Alexandra Hospital about 2am on Sunday. It is believed the man fell from his bike while riding through the Daisy Hill State Forest, near Logan, on Sunday, July 11.

He was originally discovered following the fall by other cyclists, about 750 metres from an area known as The Five Ways.

It is not clear how long the man had been alone following the fall.

Police said there were no witnesses to the incident.

According to the Queensland Government’s Environment and Resource Management website, mountain biking is a popular activity in Daisy Hill State Forest.

A police spokesman said the Logan Forensic Crash Unit would continue investigations.
