Shortly before 12:30 p.m. on Saturday 7th August,  call-handlers from Aberdyfi Search & Rescue Team received a report from a neighbouring mountain rescue team at Brecon of an injured motorcyclist at Penrhyn Coch, near Aberystwyth.

The male in his 60 had sustained suspected chest and shoulder injuries following a crash whilst off-road riding. 

With Dyfed Powys Police Officers already on scene, Team members deployed to the incident, and the arrival on-scene of the first Team volunteers coincided that of the Welsh Ambulance Service.

The casualty was assessed and treated by attending paramedics and Team members then assisted with a stretcher carry to a waiting ambulance at the nearby road. The casualty was transported to hospital for further assessment and treatment.

Team members stood down at 14:20
