Maggie Coles-Lyster (born 12 February 1999)[5] is a Canadian professional racing cyclist, who currently rides for Roland Cycling.

Coles-Lyster competed at the 2017–18 UCI Track Cycling World Cup where she won a bronze medal in the team pursuit. She also competed at the 2018 Pan American Track Cycling Championships, where she won a bronze medal in the team pursuit event,[6] and at the 2019 Pan American Games where she won silver medals in the team pursuit,[7] and madison events.[8] In 2022 she won gold in the Canadian National Road Race Championships.[9]

In 2020, she came forward with allegations of sexual assault which occurred at a race in the Netherlands in 2017.[10] A formal investigation has been opened by the cycling governing body, the Union Cycliste Internationale.[11]

In 2023, she was a rider on in the ill-fated Zaaf Cycling Team, which disintegrated amidst news of unpaid riders,[12] and ended up being picked-up mid season by Israel–Premier Tech.[13]
