The 23 Preston Bus service was travelling down Plungington Road towards Preston city centre on Saturday (10 September) at 8.10pm.
The cyclist, a 42-year-old man from Preston, was initially trapped underneath the bus.
He was freed and taken to Royal Preston Hospital with head, chest and pelvic injuries.
Police say his condition is described as critical but stable.
Plungington Road was closed from its junction with Lytham Road to junction with Blackpool Road for three hours while police investigated the scene.
Sergeant Adam Dawson from the Road Policing Unit said: “This was clearly a very serious collision and we are still trying to locate any witnesses that we may not have spoken to.
“My thoughts are with the family of the cyclist who is still very poorly in hospital at this time.
“There were a number of passengers on board the bus who thankfully didn’t suffer any injuries and Preston Bus are assisting us with our enquiries.”
Anyone with information is asked to call the police on 101 quoting incident reference LC-20160910-1466.
