Police say the body of a man who apparently died while riding his bicycle was discovered in Rockport.

According to WABI-TV, the man's body was found off the pavement on Mt. Pleasant Road Saturday afternoon. Apparently, the man's bike left the road on a sharp turn and hit a tree head-on. No one noticed the accident until a foul odor led police to investigate.

The man's identity has not yet been released. At this point, officials don't know exactly when the crash happened, but say there have been no reports of any bicyclist who was missing or injured in the area.

The accident remains under investigation.
