Avoid the Door Zone Videos

Here’s a well-executed educational video about why cyclists should ride at least 5 feet from parked cars. Warning: some of the dashboard camera videos are disturbing to watch.

Here’s an excellent video of League of American Bicyclists instructor Preston Tyree teaching the minimum distance from a parked car that a cyclist should ride. This often means riding to the left of a striped bike lane if it is marked next to on-street parking.
