The 52-year-old motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene; his identity has not yet been revealed publicly, pending notification of his family.
The collision occurred after a bicyclist riding along San Ramon Valley Boulevard in the southbound bicycle lane lost control of their bike and fell into the traffic lane directly in the path of the southbound motorcycle near the Fountain Springs Drive intersection at approximately 12:30 p.m. Sunday, according to police Lt.

The motorcyclist was unable to avoid a collision and struck the bicycle, sustaining serious injuries that were ultimately fatal, according to Ingrassia. San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District paramedics pronounced the motorcyclist deceased at the scene.
The bicyclist sustained minor injuries in the crash and was transported to San Ramon Regional Medical Center for treatment, according to Ingrassia.
