Here’s the scenario:
You’re out in the open space, hiking up a steep dirt trail with your dog-on-leash, smelling the wildflowers, listening to birdsongs, and around a turn comes a mountain biker. But as luck would have it, you were prepared for this meeting because they had a bell on their bike, which alerted you. It’s a simple thing, but makes for much safer trail experience. Whern you’re out in the open space, on foot, on bike or on horseback…Make a little Noise.
Making noise with a bell or other noise making device while enjoying City open space can help ensure safety of yourself and others. Bells can: identify mountain bikers and hikers to avoid collisions, keep horses from being spooked and give snakes and other critters advanced notice of your presence so they are not startled.
