Okanagan cyclist injured after crashing in construction zone

Keep your head up when cycling in construction zones

Penticton RCMP are reminding to pay close attention to construction zones after a cyclist was injured.

On Thursday afternoon a cyclist went through a construction zone and couldn’t make it over a ditch, which was marked and had flaggers and construction crews on scene. The cyclist crashed their bike and was taken to hospital for examination.

“This is a good reminder to keep your head up when cycling and be aware of construction zones,” said Const. James Grandy.
