Saddle wisdom Part 3

"The sound of a car door opening in front of you is similar to the sound of a gun being cocked."
~Amy Webster

The quote is oh so true! Think about it, a lot of our riding is on streets with on street parking. We may now notice everything out there, but we try to keep our eyes on the road all the time.

This being said, it is hard to avoid broken glass, pot holes, lose gravel and whatevr else there might be on the road. So if you can, could you maybe peak before you fling open your door? We very much appreciate it.

The car door flying open is a common object of injury to a cyclist. Think about it, you have no extra protection around you and your being thrown at whatever speed of travel into an unmovable object.
