A cyclist died Sunday morning of an apparent heart attack while participating in the Five Boro Bike Tour.

Michael Boren, 51, of Almont, Mich., went into cardiac arrest around 10:50 a.m. on the upper level of the Queensboro Bridge, according to police. He was then taken to NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

About 32,000 people participated in the 40-mile-long bike tour, which started in lower Manhattan and ended on Staten Island near the ferry terminal.
