About the Bike Bell Project

The Bike Bell Project came about through the recognition of how smartphones can make our roads safer for vulnerable users.  By utilising this technology carried by the majority of people we can better share the roads and footways by which we travel.

The BikeBell app works by tracking cyclists and placing a virtual safety buffer around them.  When a driver or pedestrian running the BikeBell app comes close to the cyclist, they receive a notification and a bike bell rings on their phones.
