Cyclists may get free bells

Dunedin cyclists could soon be ringing their bells courtesy of the Dunedin City Council.

The idea of offering free bells to the city's cyclists was discussed by councillors at yesterday's 2014-15 annual plan deliberations, after a public submission called for the idea to be considered.

Cr David Benson-Pope raised the idea again yesterday, saying he would be happy for anything ''other than a klaxon'' for cyclists to be considered by the council.

''DCC-sponsored bells, with advertising logos on them, would be great.''

Mayor Dave Cull said free bells, part-funded by the council, had been offered to cyclists years ago.

''I was the recipient of a couple myself''.

The idea would be referred to the council's infrastructure services committee for consideration, Mr Cull said.
