i have a fun little video that i made this weekend. i love my bell. it is one of my favorite things about riding my bike. i am one of those riders that isn't afraid to ring her bell and let it be known that i am rolling by.
not only is a bell just so cute with the sweet sound it makes and the smile it puts on my face but it is also really important for safetly too. i can't tell you how many times my bell has helped save me from a crash. it helps pedestrians and drivers know that "hey i'm on the road, look out". it also really helps with people getting in and out of their parked cars and swinging their door open without looking. i have seen people get hit by swinging doors and it doesn't look like fun. i am a cautious person by nature, i have broken so many bones that being vocal while riding comes really naturally to me.
if i don't ring my bell, you will hear me say "on your left" which is a phrase you unfortunately don't hear too often in the biking world. it is a courteous gesture to let other riders that you are passing them and i solely, and whole heartily believe in treating others how you want to be treated so i am constantly letting people know i am passing them in hopes that the favor will be returned back, when it is i always thank the rider.
red bell from public bike to adorn on kiki. i hope to be purchasing this little cutie in the very near future!
