With careful riding and protection, the chance of serious injuries is pretty small I think.
My sis rides horses and she had a concussion twice even with a cap and once the horse fell on top of her, leaving her in a wheelchair for 2 months. The chance of being in such a situation on a uni is mighty small. (she thinks riding a uni is scary ^_^)
Some folks think I am a wild and crazy adventurer. In truth I would rather avoid high risk and remain free of serious injury to be able to continue taking on new interesting things.

I am definitely not fearless, one thing that terrifies me: riding in traffic. When I lived in a small town I would ride a motorcycle or bicycle everywhere for transportation, then I moved into a big city. Went through a lot of underwear and eventually took the cowards way out, and stuck to 4 wheels. I haven't ridden any form of cycle for transportation since.
