Signalling your presence
June 18, 2013

signallingpresBoy: Because you’ve not rided a bike for ages, I’ll lead. Put your feet on the pedals, like this. Then push down one pedal and you can start moving. If you feel like you’re out of control or going too fast you press your brakes like this. If there’s a person or a car coming you have to ding your bell so they know that you’re there [dings his bell].

Mum: I haven’t got a dinger.

Boy: OK, you’ll have to clap or whistle then. When someone’s coming, or a car, I’ll ding and you clap or whistle. Actually, don’t clap – you’ll just fall off. Can you whistle?

Mum: Not when I’m laughing!
