The man responsible for the death of cyclist Patricia Fraser has been sentenced in Feilding District Court today.
Christopher David McClelland, 45, was sentenced to 175 hours' community work and disqualified for driving for 10 months.
Earlier this year he pleaded guilty to a charge of careless driving causing death.
On November 13, at 2.45pm, McClelland was travelling along State Highway 1, near Mt Stewart when he noticed Mrs Fraser, 34, and a friend riding single file in the cycle lane.
His car drifted towards the cycle lane. The front left corner of his vehicle hit Mrs Fraser's rear wheel.
The cyclists were wearing yellow high-visibility riding jackets and cycle helmets at the time.
