A cyclist is in a serious condition after riding into the back of a vehicle parked on the Hawke's Bay Expressway.

The 42-year-old Hastings man was cycling along the expressway around midday when he hit a trailer attached to a ute that was parked off the road.

The driver had pulled off the road to use his cellphone.

The cyclist was taken to Hawke's Bay Hospital with serious head and internal injuries.

Police say it appeared he was travelling "at some speed" and did not see the trailer. After hitting the trailer he landed on a small mower that was on the trailer.

The Police Serious Crash Unit is investigating the incident.
