It depends. I used to have a commute route that included a couple miles of sidewalk with very light to no pedestrian traffic. At that time I found a bell handy for when I came upon the occasional pedestrian. It sure beat yelling at them as I approached. I nearly always got a friendly nod in exchange for not startling them. Now I ride almost exclusively in the street, so I took it off. I still wish I had it sometimes though, when I drive my ride down to the bike path at the beach. Then there's plenty of use for a bell.
