Incident type: Close call
Location of incident: East West Link (Stage 1), Carlton North Victoria 3054, Australia


Due to someone on their phone as they exit their vehicle I was almost doored. The worst thing is there were about 5 other cyclists behind me which probably would have caused a pile up and not to mention the traffic that was also crossing the intersection at the same time. I turned around and he said he was sorry and that he'd "buy me a beer next time". Next time? I sincerely hope he learnt his lesson so there should never be a next time.
