Damn, I'm really sorry to hear of that. Did your injuries require medical attention? Was the driver at least helpful (if apparently oblivious)? I hope you feel better soon!

Owwww! Hope the driver helped, at least.
Jul 12, 2017 5:51 PM # 
Ach! Really hope you're okay.

Oh no!!! I hope these are mostly scrapes and bruises and that you are doing ok and being nice to yourself.

Oh, boy, sorry to hear that, Barb!

That possibility is ever-present on my mind when I am on my bike and approaching parked cars.

Oh so difficult to avoid. Hope nothing serious hurts. Same happened to me back in college on a wet almost icy day going to class. Fortunately not going fast but couldn't stop totally and bumped the door that had opened. No damage. Get well quickly.

Oh that sux, so sorry to hear that. Glad you're able to log and read and so on, but please take care of yourself!

ooh, sorry to hear that. I hope you heal quick

Assuming it's what it sounds like, this makes me so angry. Drivers have a responsibility to look before opening doors. Hope this is just a minor setback for you.

Ouch, that sucks, and cars are dumb.

Ug. Biking in this town really can suck. Hope the driver was helpful and apologetic.

Sorry to hear this. Hope everything is fine under the circumstances.

I'm so sorry. I hope you heal up quickly, and the bike can be repaired. Not fun!

Drivers do have a responsibility to look before opening the door, but you can never ever count on people to follow the rules or use common sense. Always stay out of that door zone, even if it means riding in the middle of the street.
