When cycling on bike paths and trails, a bike bell can sound like “get out of my way” when you really just want to gently let people know you’re there. BikeTones provides a friendly way to signal pedestrians and other cyclists. It is intended for use on trails and bike paths, away from streets and cars. Unless you're using an external speaker, it generally isn't loud enough for use around cars and other loud sounds.
To use the app on a bike ride, you’ll need either a handlebar mount for your phone, or a Bluetooth media remote.
