If he hates cycling, buy him a gift relating to something he does like. It is possible that not everyone likes your hobbyPosted 9 months ago
The word ‘hate’ is nearly always over-used/misused IMO. A globally-adopted USA-ism that by now could surely be defined as anything from ‘mild dislike’ to ‘snarling, spitting, careering repugnance’. Usually the former.
Also need to know whether definitely ‘cycling’ or ‘cyclists’*
In most all situations (excepting a requirement to physically disarm or neutralise) I find that kindness wins.
ie if he ‘hates’ a thoughtful gift from a ‘cyclist’, then pfffft, you still did a nice thing. If OTOH he likes it, then you still did a nice thing.

What does he like? I think football is a shite game, but if I had to buy a gift for someone that likes it, o would get them something football related.Posted 9 months ago

Turd in a box if it’s cyclists.

I literally hate people who say this 🙂Posted 9 months ago
If he hates cyclists, buy him a mug of the main rival of the football team he supports.
If he just hates cycling buy him some normal secret Santa random shit, like Anne Summers slide and ride lube.Posted 9 months ago

He jokes about knocking cyclists off on a regular basis. While this is office banter it’s also a good opportunity to get him something appropriate.Posted 9 months ago

A premium subscription to the Singletrack Chat Forum. There’s little chance of him encountering any cyclists or bike related content there.Posted 9 months ago
In that case buy him a chain or some brake pads.
Or some random cycling route book.Posted 9 months ago

Splash fake blood over his car a smash his windscreen sprinkle some crushed helmet about. Take a photo. Make it a card with “cyclists are dicks I hate them with careering repugnance. Lol” put card in envelope for secret santa to dish out.Posted 9 months ago
Actually scrap that.
That is not workplace banter. Book him a one to one with his line manager to deal with your formal complaint.Posted 9 months ago
Even if said workmate was an avid cyclist + great guy i’d still go the turd in box route
anyways , i thought secret santa was an american thing for mainly women office workers ?
sounds a bit queer for british blokes.to be doing it
cold buffet spread , cheap warm booze and a punch up with the supervisior seems the proper way of celebrating xmas in the workplace.Posted 9 months ago
