Mr Brown was airlifted to Hull Royal Infirmary by the Air Ambulance where he later died on Monday.
Coroner's officer Neil Jones said: "The incident is being investigated by the Road Safety Department.
"What happens now is a statement will be taken by everyone involved in the incident.
"We are expecting it to take three or four months.
"Nothing will be ruled out in the investigation, including the condition of the bike, the roads and what the weather was like at the time."
Mr Brown was a member of the Lincsquad Cycling Club and dozens of messages of remembrance have been left on the club's website.
Member Kevin Antwhistle said: "You will always be there, just that little bit in front of me at every session keeping me on my toes.
"Your efforts inspired us all and you are what this club is all about and you are desperately missed already.
"Thank you for your friendship. It will last forever."
