How to get the sack
29.04.07 by Buffalo Bill

Ride a no-brakes fixie.

Crash into your controller as he is riding home from work.

Then refuse to put a brake on.

Word beginning in ‘m’, ending in ‘t’, 6 letters.

  1. HEEEEElarious!

    just for the sake of curiosity and gossip how about the first and last letters of the “offenders” name?!

  6. Bill, you can’t sack Creative riders, you sure as hell can’t sack non-creative riders.

  7. I didn’t sack him! It wasn’t me he crashed into. I heard the story through a third party.

  9. I mean creative has loads of riders whose brakes don’t work but nearly everyone there i know working brake or not would admit their blame if they were in the wrong…

    Course.. it could be that the controller crashed into the rider and even if he’d had a brake it wouldn’t of stopped it happing?

  10. what happened to my first comment? “its not as much about having a brake or not, its about having the integrity to admit if your wrong”

  11. why is my first comment disapeering and reapering?

  12. Don’t know – it’s not me!

  13. Look Creative policy is clear – they have to have 2 working brakes otherwise they can’t work. As far as I know none of the controllers have ever crashed into a rider. Scott crashed into me once, but he didn’t get the sack for it because we were racing at Eastway. Martin once crashed into the post at the bottom of Stonecutter Street – but no-one else got the blame for it.

    You are right, it’s about saying ‘yes I am not skilled enough to ride without a brake – so I’ll put one on.’

    Oh look, people are being killed every month on the roads by criminal driving – but let’s all spend a lot of time getting excited about trivia, eh?

  14. Sorry to everyone for not having crashed into Bill, the situation will be rectified as soon as he is back at work. Anyone know the best way to sharpen bar-ends?

  15. I’ll do you all a favour & dispose of him on Dartmoor over the coming weekend. No-one will ever know.

  16. i’ve never been on a coming weekend on Dartmoor… invitation only?

  17. Yeah I fancy shooting down there meself.

  18. Hate to spoil a good story, Bill, but assuming this is my little episode, I managed to avoid him as he sailed through the lights at Old St roundabout, right in front of me ( which, to my mind, is a bit of a no-no, cutting up another cyclist ) and I went all soft on the sacking issue. Think I’ve lost it. I used to be such a hard nut.

  19. Soft AND fat! Oh well, and it was such a good story too.
