Appeal following death of cyclist in Richmond Park 18.12.08

Police are appealing urgently for any information
or assistance to identify a man who collapsed in Richmond Park on Wednesday 17 December.
Police were called shortly after 3pm to a cyclist who had fallen from his bike on the road that runs through the park between Richmond Gate and Pembroke Lodge.

The man was taken by ambulance to Kingston Hospital but sadly died a short while later.

A post mortem will be arranged.

The man was not carrying any form of ID with him and so far we have been unable to establish his identity.

He is described as a white man, possibly in his 30s, about 6' tall and of thin build. He has short fair hair, no facial hair and wore Lycra cycling gear in black and grey.

The bike has a white and black "MONOC" frame.

The incident is being investigated by the Royal Parks unit, based at Hyde Park.

Inspector Sarah Matthews, said:
"At this stage, we are not sure if the man fell accidentally or if there was another reason for him falling off the bike. We are appealing for anyone who may be able to identify him or for witnesses who were in the area and may have seen him prior to the incident. We would also like to hear from anyone who thinks they may recognise the description of this man and his bike."

Anyone with any information is asked to call
020 7161 9630 or Crimestoppers 0800 555 111 to remain anonymous.
