In my late teens I went over the handle bars and caught part of my gentleman's area on one of these:

Stitches were needed.  It wasn't pretty.

Two 'events' spring to mind, both when I was a lad at school and both involving alcohol!  The first I'd been out to a local farm partaking of the local scrumpy (it was Somerset).  Cycling home slightly worse the wear I fell asleep (I'm a sleepy drunk) and woke up in the ditch at the side of the road!  Buckled wheel, torn trews, I walked the rest of the way!

The next was at the end of A level exams.  I celebrated at lunchtime down the pub with my mates forgetting the swimming gala I was doing in the afternoon!  I turned up almost legless and proceeded to lose a race I should have won easily!  And then I couldn't even climb out of the pool!  Swimming teacher said he nearly jumped in to save me at one point and wasn't happy when he realised it was all because I was drunk!

FB - excellent.

My attempts didn't get past lame puns around bells.

Driving into the car park of my first triathlon I failed to note the height of an overhead barrier. Result: broken bike saddle, dint in car roof and humiliation in front of the crowd of triathletes who noticed the loud bang as I hit it.

holgs yes that would explain a lot but then so does the fact that as a kid I had half my nice new proper front tooth kicked out by a horse and then a few years later whilst bandaging the leg of a horse he flicked a fly away by rapidly moving his foot. Again my head was in the way - I now sport a scar.

My twin brother and I managed a head on bicycle collision when we were about 12. We both went over the handlebars and landed in a messy heap.

well it's kind of sporting accident as it happened at the rugby club

on my stag night at the club (I was still playing in those days) I fell headfirst off a table while trying to dance in a pool of beer simutaneously taking my clothes off (Aye Ziggy Zumba for those who have been around rugby clubs).  

headfirst meant face first and breaking a front tooth in half which I only noticed when I woke up the following morning with a raging hangover.  otherwise, my face was fine - just half a tooth less in my gob.

and this "following morning" was the day before the wedding so I had no time to get a repair done and as a result all my wedding photos have me with a strange smile trying not to display my front teeth....

I still have the half tooth - but it's been capped for a very long time now!

Mrs SA wrote (see)

Yep i have

At the Vitruvian a couple of years back.  The swim is 2 laps.  You swim 1, get out run round and back into the lake for your 2nd lap.  On starting my 2nd lap, i thought i would be clever and "dive" into the water like proper "triaffaletes", only to realise the water was knee deep.

I remember laughing at that!

But thought you would have put up the one on the Middlewood way on our MTB when you rode into that bar that was face height and got the mouthful of blood, what impressive though was the bike carried on with no one riding for a good distance.

For me was out on a long ride and had almost finished and was 100 yards from home when got up on pedals and chain slipped causing me to somersault over the handlebars

Oh yes, you went body surfing down that trail.
Plus the farm road, penningtons lane

I remember limping home with a mucky t-shirt, a chipped tooth and my arms covered in cuts and bruises.  Got a few odd looks !

This morning, I was getting ready for work when the other half shouted me to say she had fallen (on the icy steps at our back door). I came rushing out and, not realising there was this black ice I went flying as well and landed in a heap on the ground next to the missus. She is now laid up with a bad back and my glute area is giving me some jip. We must have looked like a scene out of laurel and hardy
