There was nobody else involved in the death of a cyclist who was found on the A505 on the edge of Royston on bank holiday Monday, police have confirmed this morning.

The man, aged in his 50s, appeared to have come off his bicycle and was found at around 11.45am near McDonald’s and the turning for Therfield.

Police and paramedics attended, responding to a report that the man was in cardiac arrest. Sadly he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The force launched an appeal later that day for information to piece together the circumstances in which the man came off his bike, and the case has now been passed onto the coroner.

Sgt James Wood from the Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire Road Policing Unit said: “Through our enquiries we have established that there was no third party involved in the death of this man.

“His family have been updated and the case has now been passed to the coroner for Hertfordshire.

“The family of the man would like to thank all those who stopped to help their loved one and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank members of the public who came forward following our appeal for information.”
