I just installed a bell on my bicycle. After 4 years of commuting by bike, I’m slowly dropping my cyclish habits. I also have to credit the friendly writers at WaterlooBikes.ca for raising my awareness of the harm caused by agressive cycling habits.
I bought the Incredibell BrassSolo at Ziggy’s Cycle & Sport for $15.99.
No longer will I silently wizz pass pedestrians scaring them. Now I can make them jump with the angelic ding of a bell.
The pedestrian traffic on my route home has increased dramatically with the opening of the Engineering 5 at the University of Waterloo. It’s the first of two new engineering buildings slated east of the railroad tracks and the Laurel Trail (part of the Trans Canada Trail).
So although I like to sprint home from work, I temper my inner-cyclish. I want everyone to enjoy these trails and the wildlife seen along it.
