The incident occurred at about 4.15pm on Monday 1 April 2013 – Easter Monday – as the 78-year-old local woman was walking towards Bilton with her daughter.
A mountain bike rider, travelling in the same direction, collided with the woman when he tried to pass by. The man fell off his bike but remounted and continued his journey.
A man aged in his 50s was traced by officers in the Ripon area on Monday evening. He is helping officers with their ongoing enquiry.
