@neilarinisaid A car hit me from behind on a roundabout last year. I can faintly remember being hit but awoke from concussion in the ambulance a few minutes later. I always wear a helmet so escaped with bruises. I'm guessing I was thrown in the air landing on my back so if I hadn't been wearing a helmet...
Please wear a helmet when cycling. I can't believe it's not the law.
To answer the op I've broken my wrist playing rugby aged 10.
Yup - Definitely never get on my bike without a helmet now.
On that occasion the helmet disintegrated - but thankfully my head didn't.
About the only thing I do remember from the accident was the Doctor telling someone "of course, he won't remember any of this ...".
No broken bones, but I did get kocked off my bike to land on my head and shoulder snapping all the ligaments and tendons holding my right shoulder in place once.
At least they tell me it was a bike accident, but I have no memory of it at all. There's about a two-week hole in my memory from that time due to the concussion.
The docs screwed a hook to my collar bone to hang everything off while the tendons knitted back together.
