riding to work northbound on telegraph ave., at 51th st I passed a girl with a gold lamé backpack and gold sparkly/shimmery helmet.
omg super safe cycle chic! with leggings and a blazer. I would have taken a picture but my phone’s in my backpack and not enough time at the red light to take it out and snap a pic, sorry.
GOLD IS THE NEW FLUORESCENT.
then few blocks later I nearly got doored AGAIN! I believe it was in the Berkeley portion where there is a north american style fail bike lane.
the door opened 3-4 inches wide, right in front of me. I instinctively yelled out EEAYAAAH!!! I think the person stopped opening the door when she finally saw me or heard me; don’t know.
If I yell out DOOR!! that means I have barely enough time to safely swerve around. If I yell out EEAYAAAAH!!! that means you REALLY could have hit me and thrown me into traffic and killed me.
