#!markdown 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…
