Gregory Strachey, 30, died at Sheffield’s Northern General Hospital after the accident in the Peak District at the start of this month.
His inquest took place at Chesterfield Coroner’s Court last week.
Susan Evans, assistant coroner, told the inquest: “Mr Strachey was an experienced cyclist and on March 6 he was on a training ride in the Peak District.
“As he cycled down a hill on Edale Road, he fell off his bike and hit his head on the road.
“It is possible that his bike had struck a pothole in the road.
“He was taken to the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield, where, despite treatment, he died on March 7 from head injuries.”
Ms Evans concluded that Mr Strachey, of Salford, who worked as a communications manager, died as a result of an accident.
