On yer Left...!

I have to say, when I hear " ON YER LEFT..." barked at me from behind, it startles me. It seems that using a bell is a much better way to warn someone that a cyclist is about to overtake them. Recent discussions on the bikeportland.org forums show that the community is mixed in it's feeling as to whether bells or barking are the preferred measure of warning.

Vote one for bells here. Jing-Jing...

That's why I was glad to see there will be a new program, called "Bells on Bridges" organized by Margaret Weddell of the CCC to distribute and install FREE bike bells, courtesy of Bike Gallery, on the Westbound side of the Hawthorne Bridge starting Thursday 5/15 from 7:15 - 8:30, along with coffee and goodies.

Stop by get a free bell and leaving the barking to the dogs.
