The rider's condition was not immediately available.

The crash closed one northbound lane of PCH for about an hour, Ruda said.

Cyclists on the PCH and winding canyon roads scare the hell out of me. I know bicycles have rights on the road too but you have to know that the energy and weight of a car far exceeds that of a bike. Bikes often come out into lanes in blind curves and almost seem to test drivers. Risk must be managed. Hope the man is ok.
