We were sitting around my porch table drinking my homebrew beer and talking about my cycling last weekend (I'm the only one that cycles in my group.) Someone had heard a story that says a bike accident happens about every 5000 miles of riding, and at some point before I said I'd been trying to keep my riding up around 100 miles/week, which is hard for me because of the time commitment, not because of ability. So he then does the math: 100 miles/week, 52 weeks, but you don't ride through winter so maybe only 26 weeks, so every 2 years you should be getting into some kind of accident. Well I had my last accident in 2010.
On Memorial Day I had my 4th accident in 8 years.
At least this one only bruised me and left me with some road rash, no trip to the emergency room.
