The incident, which happened close to the junction with Avery Hill, shortly before 8am involved a grey Audi A3 car and a cyclist.
The cyclist, a 29-year-old woman, was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham. She has since been transferred to another hospital where she is continuing in her recovery.
An investigation is continuing and enquiries have shown the following vehicles in the area at the time. The vehicles described were not involved in the collision.
A Transit-style van which appears to be grey in colour with a blue logo or writing on the side. The vehicle was at the Avery Hill junction waiting to turn right into Hinckley Road

Detective Sergeant Paul Hawkins said: “We are appealing to any drivers or passengers of the vehicles above to get in touch. The vehicles were not involved in the collision but were in the area at the time and we believe the drivers or any passengers of these vehicles may therefore be able to help us.
“If you recognise one of the vehicles above, please make contact – no matter how insignificant your information may seem.
“Anyone else who was in the area at the time who saw the collision, or the vehicles involved prior to the incident, is also urged to get in touch with police if you have not already done so. The incident happened last Monday morning when people would have been travelling to work. Please think back to if you were in the area at the time. Did you see anything which could help our enquiries?
“We are also continuing to appeal to anyone who has any dashcam footage or CCTV from the time of the incident to get in touch.”
Anyone with any information should call 101, quoting incident 91 of 1 July.
