A MOTORCYCLIST trapped at 221 km/h was the worst offender among several bikers caught speeding in KwaZulu-Natal yesterday.

Africa Bike Week is taking place in Margate until Monday, but it could not be confirmed that the bikers were headed there.

The 221 km/h speedster was stopped near Park Rynie. He was released on bail of R4 000.

The speeds recorded by the other four bikers caught ranged upwards from 172 km/h.

In addition, Netcare 911’s Jeff Wicks reported that a motorcyclist and his passenger were seriously injured when they fell from their motorcycle on the R603 Umbumbulu Road yesterday morning and were hospitalised.

The cause of the accident is not known, but the rider is thought to have lost control after swerving to avoid another vehicle.

The two fell from the bike and slid into the roadside barrier, Wicks said.
