POLICE investigating the death of a Lowood cyclist found dead in a hit and run near Inglewood on Anzac Day are appealing for further public assistance.
Police investigations indicate Dr Martin Pearson was riding a bicycle along Inglewood-Millmerran Road when he was struck by a vehicle sometime between 2.30pm and 3.25pm on Friday, April 25.
The 61-year-old father-of-two was competing and part organiser of the nine-day Audax Queensland GT series, a 600km bike ride from Tenterfield to Lowood via Dalby.
His wife Sandy Vigar who was following in a support vehicle last saw her husband at the ride checkpoint at Inglewood and said he was in "good spirits".
Police said officers were continuing to search for the vehicle involved which failed to remain at the scene.
The call for more information coincides with a memorial service for Dr Pearson at the University of Queensland Gatton campus at 11.30am today.
Immediately following the service, there will be a short bike ride around the campus to remember Dr Pearson, and more than 50 riders will participate.
Dr Pearson was the associate professor of Veterinary Anaesthesia at the University of Queensland Gatton Campus
