Here it comes - looks like I better get a bell for my mountain bike for when I am riding to a track. Taking this to the extreme, this could mean you will need a bell when riding on fire trails. I can see it now - 'bell inspection' officers at the bottom of The Oaks.

So... I'm riding off the bridge and down to Hickson Rd this morning when some muppet doesn't see me at corner of Kent & Argyle.

A quick yell to attract his attention sees a stalled car and coffee in his lap. Nice Smiling

Show me a bell that works that well... and without moving your hands either! Laughing out loud
