A police spokesman said: "The car driver did not stop at the scene. The vehicle is believed to be a white Volkswagen Golf, 2014-2019 model. A wing mirror light bar and cover were detached during the collision, and so the car will have distinctive damage to its wing mirror.

"Fortunately, the cyclist, a man in his 40s, was not seriously injured.

"If you were the car driver involved, please contact North Yorkshire Police.

"In addition, anyone who witnessed the collision, recognises the car involved, or is aware of a VW Golf with wing mirror damage, is asked to get in touch."
