A 52-year-old man died in Canberra Hospital on Wednesday night after he crashed his motorcycle on Shingle Hill Way, Gundaroo last weekend.

The man was riding around a bend when he lost control of his Yamaha bike, sliding along the bitumen and ending up in a ditch.

Emergency services responded at 3pm on the Sunday and rushed him to the hospital, where the man eventually died over Wednesday night.

The police are preparing to brief the Coroner on the incident.
