Bell: for pedestrians. What are you doing riding where the peds are? Get on the road!

Old-time bulb horn: Great fun, marginally more useful than a bell.

Air Horn, especially the Zound: Penetrates closed car windows, good against dozy drivers who aren't awake yet, great noisemaker in a Critical Mass.

But none of these are essential. You can just yell instead.
