I've come off my bike a few times. Been to A&E twice, NHS walk-in once, ruined merino tights once. At least 2 times in 2014 (including a memorable day in December when @vickster and I both came off in separate incidents), and 2 again 2015. Maybe none last year, and none so far this year. So let's say once every 5000km (to pluck a number out of the air). It's probably higher than that, though. It did not occur to me that was a lot, just one of the hazards of being alive; if you ride a bike, you fall off it occasionally. It turns out @jonny jeez has only come off once in 10 years, so he thinks offs are extremely rare. So then, data: is coming off a rare event for you or not? Clipless, pothole, mechanical, collision, black ice, gravel, etc. Restrict the poll to cycling on the roads or paths, not doing technical downhills on a MTB or cyclocross racing or anywhere else that coming off would be expected. Feel free to share those in replies below, if you want to.
