Philadelphia Freedom (or how I got sucker punched in Philly)

I was hatched in NYC & I love riding my bike in the Big Apple. I also spent some time in Philly.

It took me a while to figure out the traffic flow in the City of Brotherly Love, but once I found my groove, I did enjoy riding my bike on the same streets that our Founding Fathers once rode on.

On the downside though, while I was doing a trackstand at an intersection, waiting for the light to change, some dude just punched me in the chest for no particular reason.

Where's the love bro?

Anyways, there's lots to do in Philly with the bike, so check it out if you got the time.

Just be careful of that sucker punch.

Oddly enough, I've always been curious about this happening to me at a red light, and what the result would be. Did you go down?

No, I held my balance on the bike, kept my cool & rode off.

I've always worried about someone rushing me from the side and knocking me down. Especially in the rough neighborhoods.
