Tributes are flowing for an Adelaide woman who died after falling off a pushbike earlier this month.

Kayla Wright, 30, was rushed to Royal Adelaide Hospital in critical condition after an accident on Spring Gully Road in Gillentown on February 5.

In a statement posted on social media, her family confirmed she succumbed to her injuries last week following a four-day battle.

"It is with a very, heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of our beautiful, sassy and incredibly caring daughter," her mother Stacey wrote.

"Kayla was surrounded by family and friends, who were at her bedside the entire time.

"Kayla made such a lasting impact on everyone she met and left an imprint in their heart.

Her mother added she was "adored and lived life with an open heart".

"She will be missed by many."

A family friend has since launched a GoFundMe to assist her parents and younger brother through the tragedy.

The appeal has so far raised $22,999 – exceeding its $5000 goal – within 24 hours.

"Kayla was the most caring, loving, kind and funny person. She always lived life to the absolute fullest," the fundraiser reads.

"She travelled the world and lived abroad, never staying in one place for too long. She was deeply loved by anyone involved her in life and she loved just as strongly right back.

"She positively impacted anyone's life that she touched. There are many shattered hearts around the world."

The Wright family will be holding a celebration of life for Kayla at a later date.

The 30-year-old's death marks the ninth life lost on SA roads this year.
