Looking for a way to have equal rights when cycling, even when there’s no bike lane?
Jonathan Lansey from Loud Bicycle knows the roads are not as bicycle-friendly as they should be. So he came up with a solution to help bike riders stay safe on the road.
The Loud Mini Bicycle Horn makes the same sound that drivers are programmed to pay attention to: the sound of a car horn.
So when you use it, drivers will immediately react.
Thanks @LoudBicycle for helping cyclists get the attention of cars with a horn that sounds like another car!
