Make Friends On The Trail! PDF Print E-mail

Bear BellSan Diegans love their trails. We recommend you put a bear or cow bell on your bike because a well maintained bike is pretty quiet and using a bell means hikers, equestrians and other mountain bikers are likely to hear you coming even before you see them. Other trail users have told us many times how much they prefer hearing the ringing of an approaching bell than suddenly hearing us yell something like "On yer left!"

REI sells a particularly good one with an attached small magnet that grabs the clapper to silence it so you don't have to hear it on those long slow climbs, yet it's easy to slide the magnet off when you head downhill (picture at right). So get a bell and happy trails for all!

UPDATE: REI has donated 400 Bells to SDMBA. We will be giving them out at trail work events to all volunteers. So come to the next trail work event, see calendar.
