Actually I have a bell on all my regular bike. My wife not so much. It's funny but in the US people would shake their heads at my bell. They where fashion victims as far as I am concerned.
I wouldn't ride without one on a busy multi-use trail.

Shropshire Lad said:A bell?!? The most superfluous piece of kit known to cycling man. The human voice is: a) more immediate; b) louder; c) safer to use; and d) more informative than a piddling little bell.
Every cyclist knows that "ON YOUR LEFT" is far preferable to 'ting'.
Tell you what - we'll start a campaign that every cycle has to have an ashtray, too. Just about as useful.
