I'm 55 and have had some good luck falling/crashing. In addition to cycling I race karts and am one of the fortunate few, I race with, that has never had a rib or collarbone injury. I attribute this to my lifelong affaire with skate boarding. I've always kept a skateboard in my car and I won't hesitate to ride it on any nice surface I run across. Even in my worst shape, 5'7" and 252 I continued to ride the skateboard... what a sight . Once or twice a year my skateboard spits me off and I take a tumble. I just seem to bounce well.

I certainly don't recommend skate boarding to anybody but it seems to work for me. Or at least I've convinced myself of that.
