    Couple of minor scrapes as a kid, one clipless moment(during my very short clipless career) as an adult, but no injury and one sore shoulder when hit by a close passing lorry.

    I'm quite happy with the idea of this list never growing any longer
  2. Me: concussion and two partially crushed vertebrae from being hit by a car
    Husband: jaw broken in three places, dislocated and fractured elbow from face planting off a jump.

    Worst I've done was collide with a barbed-wire fence at a fair old speed when I was a teenager. It wasn't nice ...

    Knees were fine running....screwed up since I started cycling. Been troubled by them about a year and a half....best part of a year off the bike/no running.
    Cycling knee friendly? paahh

    Just a broken collarbone, on day one of a 6,000 km ride!

    Re-started after four weeks recovery, and managed 4,000 in six weeks!

    Came off on the folder going downhill on a country lane. Tried to slow down for a motorist coming the other way and the bike seemed to go sideways from under me. I landed hard on my right elbow and had to have 12 stitches. £250 damage to the bike.
