I ride my bike. It has a little blue bike bell. I take pictures (when I can do so safely) in metro-Atlanta, an urban area that is trying to improve its bike access and safety. I noticed that the little blue bike bell shows up in my pictures, and it rings true–you can see the good, the bad, and the wtf? from its point of view.

Bottom line? If The Little Blue Bike Bell can’t get around safely in your city, your city is not safe for bike riding. Cold, hard truth, folks. The Little Blue Bike Bell doesn’t lie.
