Gilbert, 53, a resident of the Cypress Run Villas community, died from her injuries on Saturday. In January, she wrote on Facebook, “Love that my new job is so close to home. I get to ride my bike to and from work for my daily workout. That’s 3 miles to and 3 miles back home each day for a total of 6 miles.”
She worked nearby at a pharmaceutical compounding company in the corporate park.
According to police, Gilbert was killed when a 2020 Toyota Camry traveling in the southbound lane on Coral Ridge Drive collided with her bike.
