I never saw it coming. When I reached out my hand to greet the Wrecking Ball before yesterday's ride, he showed me a smile full of sharp teeth as he grasped my hand and pulled me towards him, planting his knee in my groin. Doubled over in pain, I tried to catch my breath until Big Worm brought his two big hams together over his head and clubbed me to the ground. "You ready to go for a ride now Juancho?"
After that it was body blows followed by haymakers, kidney punches and stomps to the in-step, dirty boxing and where did my lunch money go. Their other two friends would occasionally stand me up and shove me into a flying elbow. I was on Bikechain posse local terrain and they really dusted off the welcome mat for me.
I spit some teeth out and asked them, "is that all you boys got?"
It was the best ride of the week, no question.
