A cyclist who fell from his bike in Sydney's north has died in hospital, six months after he was knocked unconscious in the crash.

Milton Stephen, 76, was riding along Darley Road in Manly in January when he lost control of his bicycle and fell heavily onto the road.

Mr Stephen was knocked unconscious and was taken to Royal North Shore Hospital with serious head and facial injuries, a fractured pelvis and a broken rib.

Sadly, he never left.

Police said Mr Stephen had remained in intensive care, but his condition had slowly deteriorated in the six months after the crash. He died in hospital on Saturday.

Manly Police said they had investigated the cause of the crash in the months after Mr Stephen was injured, and there was no suggestion that another person or vehicle was involved in the crash.

However following his death, officers now were seeking further witnesses to compile a report for the coroner.

They have appealed for anyone who saw the crash, which occurred as Mr Stephen was riding north on Darley Road about 8.20am on January 19, to come forward.

Police said a member of the public attempted to help Mr Stephen at the crash scene, but they also would like to speak to a group of cyclists who were believed to have been riding ahead of Mr Stephen on Darley Road at the time.

Mr Stephen was riding a blue bicycle and wearing a green and black cycling jersey, black pants and a blue helmet at the time of the crash.

Anyone with information has been urged to call Manly Police on (02) 9976 8099 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
