Two bikers killed on way to Vivid Sydney

There are numerous condolences for two friends who died as part of a motorcycle convoy on their way to Sydney for the famous Vivid light festival.

Doey Choi, 24, was riding in the back of a motorcycle with 26-year-old William Brown when their motorcycle collided with a car.

The friends were members of the Sydney Motorcycle Community Group and were on their way to the light show with about 40 other motorcyclists when the fatal accident occurred.

Julie Kaluzny, a member of the Sydney Motorcycle Community Group, said Ms Choi and Mr William were both such warm and cheerful people that they would be missed by all who knew them.

“They were our friends, we saw them week after week,” she said.

“When they weren’t riding, they came out with us in the car.

“They were very close friends.”

Ms Kaluzny said many of the other cyclists riding for Vivid to Mrs Macquarie’s Chair saw the collision and stopped to help their friends.

“There were so many bicycles in the way of the rescue workers that we had to relocate them because they had difficulty getting to the scene of the accident,” she said.

“It is something that causes great pain to all of us.”

Ms Kalunzy set up a memorial page for the couple on Go Fund Me to help Ms Choi and Mr Brown’s grieving families pay funeral expenses and to give their friends “the send-off they deserve”.

“Doey was very outgoing, so fun-loving and independent,” she said.

“Wil was quieter and more reserved, but both were very warm and compassionate in very different ways.

“They were both very warm people who will be truly missed by their family and friends.”

The site has already raised more than $14,000, which will be split between the two families.

“It was so heartwarming to see the support we received for the families,” she said.

“The families are shocked, they are both suffering and did not expect to find themselves in such a situation.

“The support came not only from our group, but from the entire cycling community.”
