Tasmania's peak cycling body has labelled the death of 21-year-old cyclist on the West Tamar Highway a tragedy.
Cycling Tasmania chief executive Colin Burns happened to drive past the crash scene this morning.
``It's a tragedy...it was where I was going to ride past this morning. We train down here everyday,'' he said.
``Two young guys together and he's been hit.''
The crash occurred near the Tamar Wetlands when a utility collided with the 21-year-old's bike.
Police said the cyclist was from the Trevallyn area.
Early investigations indicate the driver didn't see the cyclist, police said.
Mr Burns has called on the government to introduce a minimum one metre distance for motorists passing cyclists.
