“The investigation is currently with the Coroner and a time frame of when the matter will be finalised is unknown,” ACT police told us after we again requested comment this week.
 
“We are unable to provide any further information, however, please feel free to contact the ACT Coroner’s office,” the statement continued.

Legend Of The Sport

35yo Mike Hall was killed after being hit by a car on the Monaro Highway south of Canberra in the early hours of March 31. One of the biggest names, and most-loved characters in the sport of ultra-endurance cycling, news of his death resonated with thousands of friends, fans and supporters everywhere.

Tribute rides were held across Australia and around the world. Hall has been remembered with vigils at countless cycling events across the globe ever since, the hashtag #Ride4Mike has become a social media fixture, and his legend will live forever.

Bicycling Australia recently visited the public tribute to Mike Hall, a ghost bike erected at the site of the sickening incident. Along with the ghost bike, many have left personal momentos and tributes including beer, water, nutrition, tubes and even a cycling jersey. Set up as an interim measure, a long-term memorial tribute is being planned by the ACT cycling community along with Mike Hall’s family and friends.

Bicycling Australia have contacted the ACT Coroner’s Office and will continue to request the release of findings into the tragic case.

Rest In Peace Mike Hall.
