Haven't even finished watching this yet, but this thing is AWESOME
A bus driver has spoken out in defence of a cyclist who apparently skipped a red light and crashed into him.
Gary Wilkinson commented on Manchester Evening News’s Facebook page saying the cyclist’s brake cable snapped as he approached the lights.
He said: ‘I was the driver of the bus and just to let everyone know I parked just round the corner and ran back. The cyclist was very lucky and only suffered a cut to one of his knuckles. Also in the cyclists defence his brake cable snapped and he couldn’t stop. Scariest thing that ever happened to me.
The cyclist, who was filmed by Captf, responded to the video saying: ‘Thought I’d just get the lights, hence the speed. Realised it wasn’t happening, squeezed the front brake. Cable snapped. Not enough time to lose speed on back wheel in the wet.
‘It’s a fixed back wheel, front brake for urgent braking, pushing back on the pedals gives you controlled but sadly slower braking with the back wheel, so what you see is me pushing back as hard as i can but it’s a cr** bit of road surface and it was wet.’
WTF Bill Nye? Right in my childhood.
So, what you're saying is........Look at that wagon!
