One of the main concerns of SDMBA, is sharing the trails with everyone. Having a signal for trail users to know that a mountain biker is coming goes a long way to happy sharing of trails. While first started as a way for hikers to let bears know of their presence, these bear bells attached to mountain bikes make it very easy for hikers, equestrians, and other bikers to not be surprised by an oncoming mountain biker. This helps everyone have an enjoyable time in nature, and helps prevent misunderstandings.

Our first set of bike bells have been provided through a generous grant from our friends at REI. As we apply for more grants, a portion of those funds will go into purchasing more bells, and expanding to new locations around the county. If you would like to help, SDMBA can always use a few extra funds to buy more bells. If you would like to donate, please use the button below.

Where bike bells are currently placed:

  • Cowles (3 boxes)
  • Elfin Forest (1 box)

Places we are planning to put new bells and boxes

  • La Costa (tbd)
  • Noble Canyon (tbd)
  • Del Mar Mesa (tbd)
  • Black Mountain (tbd)
Here's what the box looks like
