On Saturday afternoon, 1 June, a female cyclist came off at speed going down the very steep hill of Heygate Bank. The police, a road ambulance crew and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance were called in.
The casualty was moved by the ambulance to the helicopter waiting in the field below Foster’s farm.
The police are investigating the cause of the accident, but the disgraceful state of the roads in Rosedale may have been a contributing factor, according to a source at the scene of the incident.
