‘I am good’: US President Joe Biden falls off while riding his bicycle
US President Joe Biden fell awkwardly while trying to dismount from his bike at the end of a weekend ride at Cape Henlopen State Park near his beach home in Delaware, however, he wasn’t hurt in the tumble.
“I’m good,” he told reporters after US Secret Service agents quickly helped him up, “I got my foot caught [in the toe clips].”
Mr Biden, 79, and first lady Jill Biden were wrapping up a morning ride when the President decided to pedal over to a crowd of well-wishers standing near the bike trail.
The President, who was wearing a helmet, took the spill as he tried to dismount, apparently falling on his right side and rolling on to his back before being helped up.
He quickly collected himself and spent several minutes chatting with people who had gathered to watch him cycling.
Mr Biden did not need medical attention and was “fine”, a White House statement said.
The Bidens are spending a long weekend at their Rehoboth Beach home, where they marked their 45th wedding anniversary.
