The rider, a 50-year-old York man, fell from the bicycle he was riding, shortly after 8pm on Monday 26 May 2014, at the junction of Petersway and Clifton Road.

The man is thought to have been travelling along the A19 in Bootham heading towards Clifton just prior to the incident.

Officers are still investigating the circumstances around the incident. However, it is not believed that any other vehicles were involved.

The rider suffered serious injuries and was taken to Leeds General Infirmary, where he currently remains.

He was riding a mountain bike with distinctive red and black panniers.

Traffic Sergeant Andrew Morton, of the Force’s Roads Policing Group said: “I am sure that anyone who saw the bike will remember it because of the noticeable panniers over the back wheel.

“If you witnessed the collision or saw the cyclist prior to the incident, I urge you to contact the police straight away.

“I am also keen to speak to anyone who assisted at the scene, prior to the arrival of paramedics and has not yet spoken to the police, and ask them to get in touch as soon as possible.”

Anyone who can assist officers with this enquiry should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Mark Patterson. Alternatively, information can be emailed to mark.patterson@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk.  Please quote reference number 12140084801.
