Making Some Noise About Bike Bells
If you want to maximise the chances of fellow riders and pedestrians hearing you, then a bike bell is necessary. Not only can bike bells warn those around you that you’re coming, they can also be used as a courteous request for people to move aside and allow you to pass. Just remember there is an etiquette to using bike bells – don’t ring them incessantly as you approach another cyclist or pedestrian, as chances are they probably won’t take too kindly to such an approach. A quick but clearly audible couple of rings as well as a courtesy ‘passing, please’ should do the job nicely!
