Samui Air Zound Cycling Horn

Use your bicycle pump to fill the plastic cylinder and you have a transport-truck-loud bicycle horn.  By my experience (and the law) very much needed on these careless TO streets.

Hey!!! Wake up! Your doing something stupid (poor stressed out commuter).

Check out this Bicycle Video Cam Youtube Uploader from the UK – the cyclist uses it to prevent a collision with a delivery van.

It’s loud!!

Victoria B.C. proves bikes are faster than cars

In this video from CTV Vancouver Island - posted May 23, 2012 – participants left from various points in the city of Victoria British Columbia, one driving a car, the other a bicycle – to see which one could get to the same destination fastest.

The Bikes won hands down.

One problem – the bike representatives didn’t seem to be aware that they had to follow traffic laws during the trials!

Still, I’d bet that a test of this here in Toronto would show that the bicycle IS faster than a car in rush hour traffic. Different distances from different areas of the city might reveal some interesting metrics.

Next year during Bike Month we should try this here in Toronto.
