The grieving partner of a cycling identity who died in a freak motorcycle accident has revealed his heartbreaking final moments.

Ashley McGowan died after his motorcycle ran off Collins Road in Ninderry, on the Sunshine Coast, before crashing into a log and shipping container on Tuesday.

According to his girlfriend Michelle Freeman, the 39-year-old regularly traveled along the route to his company HighGeaRacing in Coolum.

Michelle Freeman said the couple (pictured) were planning dinner before Ashley McGowan was killed in a motorcycle accident on Tuesday

“He was ready to meet me and eat, it was our usual business and there was nothing unusual about it,” Ms Freeman told The Courier Mail.

She said Mr McGowan was an accomplished rider who competed in groups at a professional level as she struggled to understand how the tragedy happened.

“Something must have happened to his bike because he would never have missed that corner, but the investigation will tell us more,” she said.

Mrs. Freeman, who has known her boyfriend for more than eight years, mourns his death along with Mr. McGowan’s parents, close friends and his 11-year-old son.

‘[His son] is doing his best at the moment because he was very close to his father and I saw him yesterday,” she said.

“I let him know how much his father loved him… it’s just so heartbreaking.”

The couple had known each other for over eight years and planned to buy a house and have a child together

Ms Freeman, who runs the Nambour Yoga centre, said before Mr McGowan’s death that they planned to buy a house and have a child together.

The couple wanted to have more children, but Mrs. Freeman suffered a devastating miscarriage shortly before his death.

“We were trying to have a child and buy a house, we had plans to spend the rest of our lives together,” she said.

“It’s hard to let that go.”

Erin Lee set up a friend of Mrs. Freeman’s to raise money for the family after Mr. McGowan’s death.

“Her longtime partner Ashley McGowan was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident on the evening of October 19,” the fundraiser read.

“He has an 11-year-old son who is also starting to process the news, as are his love, Michelle and everyone who knew him.

“Being able to ease the financial pressure on Michelle at a time like this is a huge support and so helpful, so anything you can send her through this GoFundme campaign will be gratefully received.”
