BAINSVILLE – A weekend ride for a group of motorcyclists hit a sour note after one of the bikes crashed near Bainsville.
It happened just before 6 p.m. Sunday on South Service Road at the intersection of 3rd Line Road, about 10 kilometers east of Lancaster.
An Aprilia sportbike failed to negotiate a curve and landed in a deep ditch on the south side of the road.
South Glengarry firefighters and SD&G paramedics stabilized the rider, who was lying on the gravel portion of 3rd Line Road, before putting him in an ambulance.
The rider was part of a group of five bikes, which all had Ontario licence plates.
The other riders in the group declined to comment on the situation other than saying their riding-mate was going to be okay.
SD&G O.P.P. say he has non-life threatening injuries.
South Service Road was down to one lane while police officers took measurements but the area has since fully reopened to traffic.
