Bicyclist Dies in Vernon County


A 59 year old Minnesota man is dead as a result of a bicycle incident that occurred on Saturday. The incident occurred on Railroad Avenue just south of Cherry Grove Road in the Town of Viroqua.

According to the Vernon County Sheriff, Todd G. Peterson from Faribault Minnesota, was participating in the Kickapoo Kicker bicycle event being held in Vernon County when it appeared he had a medical problem and another bicyclist found him lying next to his bike on the shoulder of the road unresponsive.

An attempt to resuscitate Peterson was unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead.

The incident remains under investigation by the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office.
