A Harrogate cyclist sustained minor injuries after falling from her bike in an incident near the Army Apprentices College.

The 44-year-old woman was riding towards Harrogate town centre with another cyclist past a silver Toyota parked on the other side of Penny Pot Lane at 6pm on Tuesday, July 9, when a Volkswagen Polo overtook the Toyota, forcing the riders to take avoiding action.

This caused the female rider to fall to the ground, and she suffered bruising and grazes to her left hand side.

The 64-year-old woman driving the Volkswagen stopped at the scene.

North Yorkshire Police are appealing for information.

Traffic Constable Steve James, of North Yorkshire Police’s Roads Policing Group, said: “If you were in the area near the Army Apprentices College at the time of the collision I ask that you come forward and contact the police as you may information about the incident that could help my investigation.”

Anyone who can help with this enquiry is asked to contact Harrogate police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Steve James.
