    Doored

    Not me.
    Saw another cyclist get doored yesterday.....by a porta-john.
    Early afternoon I was riding around the Mall in DC, long before the fireworks crowd started to gather. Not many people around yet. I see a cyclist passing across the front of a long line of porta-johns. Suddenly one of the doors pops open and clips him. He didn't fall and the person who opened the door seemed ok. I decided to let them sort it out so I just rode on, laughing to myself.

    And if you do it exactly right, it would be like riding into a hatchet.
    Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

    Now that is one you wish you would have caught on video!
