Door!

Had my first bicycle accident last night, very minor, more of a close call really. There was a cab sitting at the red light ahead of me and as I coasted up to stop on his right side, the passenger flung open the door, catching me in the hand and handlebars. It brought me to a stop and definitely scared the shit out of both of us, but no real injuries.

The passenger had probably gotten tired of watching the meter turn at the long red light and decided to walk the rest of the way home. I've done that before. He apologized profusely, but I assured him it was I was fine and it wasn't a problem. They were probably exchanging money as I came up behind them, so they couldn't have seen me coming and the cab was too dark for me to see any activity inside, so it was just one of those things.

My hand hurt like hell for the next ten minutes of my ride, but yelling "Fuck!" over and over helped greatly and by the time I got home I barely noticed it. Fortunately, I was slowing to a stop prior to the collision, so my speed was pretty low.
