Description:

I was going West on College on the College bike lane. Noticed a cab stopped on a traffic lane to the left of the bike lane, so I rang my bell repeatedly to give the passengers notice that I was approaching (I also had my high beam, strobing headlights on). Seconds before I approached the passengers opened the door and doored me. It occurred in front of witnesses outside a club near Fresca Pizzeria. I incurred some scrapes and bruises. Might have tweaked a muscle on my right arm. And my bike seems to have some damage (making squeaking noises).
