I am very clumsy and have fallen many times, but never scraped my
face yet. I am 58 years old. I have never scraped my face or plowed up a carpet with my nose within my memory. There, I said it.

If you do, and you ride a lot, it will happen.. eventually. You will go down. Wear a helmet.

5. I am an old woman. Once I went over the handlebars of my 10-speed
and landed on asphalt. Slightly skinned palms, but no face injury. I can understand your getting a scrape here and there, but land's sakes! Every 2 months!
