    he fell off the bike

    Hi,

    He fell off the bike.

    Is there any other verb which can be used in place of "fell"?

    Re: he fell off the bike

    If the bike, for example, hit a big stone, you could say "He was thrown off/from his bike".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    In BrE at least, please don't use "off of"!
