What happened

Roadway description: Bike lane (left of parking lane)

Your story: I was riding behind a friend and we were headed southbound on Damen. A woman in an SUV was parked facing the same direction. She almost opened the door, but saw him and didn’t. As soon as he passed her, she started to open her door. I swerved a little bit and she quickly closed it and looked surprised. We made eye contact, but that was it. I kept riding.

Suggested improvements: A protected bike lane would be great!
