Clair said witnessing the crash was "horrific".
"I hopped out of my car and called 111 and started slowing down traffic. People came running out of the homes to try help the young man on the bike, giving him chest compressions," Clair said.
"There were a lot of people yelling to 'help him, help him,' but there wasn't much that could be done."
The Serious Crash Unit was investigating.
