Having busted ribs three times riding a bike over the past few years I can say
that leading with my arms isn't a solution. I always do that. If I had the
strength, I'd have probably just broken my arm(s), possibly instead of my
ribs. Not sure if one is better than the other since it's been a long time
since I've broken an arm. Mostly it comes down to falling in the types of
terrain that one should not fall, and having some bad luck to land on a
particularly bad spot. At least that's my interpretation. Once I landed on the
end of my handlebar, once on a pointy rock and once on an upwardly protruding
broken branch stemming from a fallen log. That last one was my sternum and if
the branch stem wasn't blunted, I feel quite confident that I would not be
typing this right now. Sometimes you have bad luck that isn't all bad…
