Did anybody see anything happen at Chatfield this afternoon (Friday)? My wife drove by and saw a group of cyclists and emergency vehicles. I hope everyone is safe.

Barry Gutierrez, the former colleague they quoted in the story, is an old friend of mine (almost 20 years). I found out about this on his Facebook page and have been following it since, but I haven't found out any details of the accident. From what I've read, he was wearing a helmet, which cracked in half on impact, but didn't have any brain trauma.

They created a FB group for him.

Not much info, ironically, for a reporter's death.

First off, my prayers go out to the Meadows family and friends.

On the news last night they had a brief "memory" story for James Meadows. All they really said concerning the cause of death was that he died as a result of a bicycle accident at Chatfield. I think it would be beneficial to the cycling community if someone who was there (or knows) could post how the accident happened. As many of us ride through Chatfield on a frequent basis, any information to avoid a similar accident in the future would certainly be helpful and appreciated.
