Clay Mankin, owner of the City Cycle bike shop in San Francisco, died on Sunday, November 13, while riding his bike on a 400-mile trip to Santa Barbara to celebrate his 50th birthday with friends. Mankin apparently suffered a heart attack as investigating police did not find traces of a collision with a car.

The 49 year-old was on the board of directors of the San Francisco Bike Coalition, working to improve bike access and bike commuting conditions for cyclists, as well as being involved with the Bay Area Outreach & Recreation Program, which provides sports and recreation for people with disabilities, and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy.
