Danes and bicycle bells, part 1

Trying to get past a couple of ladies on the cycle path and rang my bell. No response.

Caught up a little closer, and rang again. Again, no response.

So I enquired "Excuse me my dear, but car drivers with their doors shut can hear my bell, why is it you cannot?"

She turns and says "It has to be in Danish for me to understand."

So there you have it, confirmation of what I have long suspected, Danes do not understand an English bicycle bell.

Well, to clarify, that makes at least two now.
