Description:

I was third in a group of three cyclists, the first two passed a car that was moving slowly. As I came alongside, it stopped suddenly and the passenger door swung open. I swerved, narrowly avoiding contact.

This occurred around 11 pm, so it was dark, though the street was well-lit and we all had lights.
