UPDATE, November 4: The man charged with killing cyclist David Thomson in Delacombe, Bradley Spark, has withdrawn his application for bail.
He will be remanded until April, when he will return to court for a committal mention.
His bail application was originally listed for Friday, but the date has been vacated and withdrawn.
PREVIOUSLY: An Alfredton man has been remanded in custody after being charged with culpable driving causing the death of cyclist David Thomson in Delacombe last week.
Detectives from the Major Collision Investigation Unit arrested Bradley John Spark in Ballarat East on Wednesday night.
The 39-year-old was later charged with culpable driving causing death, failing to stop and failing to render assistance.
Spark appeared from custody at the Ballarat Magistrates' Court on Thursday for a filing hearing and his lawyer did not make an application for bail.
She said a bail application would be made next week.
Due to the "very technical and complicated" investigation, the police prosecutor requested 16 weeks for investigators to prepare the briefing documents.
Spark's lawyer did not oppose this.
The matter will return to court for a committal mention in April 2022.
EARLIER: A man has been arrested and charged following the hit-run collision of a cyclist in Delacombe last Thursday.
Detectives from the Major Collision Investigation Unit arrested a 39-year-old Alfredton man in Ballarat East last night and subsequently charged him with culpable driving causing death, failing to stop and failing to render assistance.
He was held in custody overnight to appear before the Ballarat Magistrates' Court on Thursday morning.
After the arrest, detectives from MCIU and Ballarat Crime Investigation Unit executed a search warrant at a property in Lacys Road, Ross Creek.
David Thomson, 60, had been cycling to his shift at Eureka Concrete on October 21.
As Mr Thomson, more commonly known as "Thomo", peddled along Brazenor Street and approached the Latrobe Street intersection about 5.40am, the driver allegedly cut the corner and crossed on to the wrong side of the road.
Earlier this week, the family of Mr Thomson made an emotional plea for the driver to come forward.
Mr Thomson's daughter, Sophie Thomson, told the media she was taking her usual route to work about 7am last Thursday when she came across her colleagues processing a crime scene in Delacombe.
The detective senior constable, attached to the Criminal Investigation Unit at Ballarat Police Station, decided to pull over and ask if they needed any help.
"A detective sergeant I work with daily informed me that a cyclist had been hit and killed. That cyclist was my father," an emotional Detective Senior Constable Thomson told the media on Tuesday.
"My world instantly broke. Dad had been tragically killed on the way to work.
Police also released new footage of the car suspected to be involved this week.
Detectives would like to thank the community for their assistance with the matter.
