79-year old President Biden falls off bike during ride in Delaware but no medical attention needed, says White House


President Joseph R. Biden Jr. fell off his bike on Saturday morning while riding near his Rehoboth Beach in Delaware, but there was no need for any medical attention, the White House said.

The 79-year old leader traveled to his vacation home on Friday but fell down on Saturday after his right foot got caught on the pedal while he was dismounting.

“Im good, I’m good,” President Biden told pool reporters who often travel with the American leader, explaining that one of his shoes got stuck in a toe cage on a pedal as he tried to stop to interact with fans.

“As the President said, his foot got caught on the pedal while dismounting and he is fine. No medical attention is needed. The President looks forward to spending the rest of the day with his family,” a White House official said.

Pool report said President Biden set off around 8: 30 am with his wife Jill Biden and security agents. They all tooled around the bike paths of Cape Henlopen State Park. But an hour later when he pulled away from Jill to chat with the locals who had gathered near the press pool to watch him pass by, his right foot got caught on the pedal while he was dismounting and his fell down.

Reports said a woman had said “Happy Father’s Day as others clapped prompting the president to stop. But, the crowd’s greetings turned to gasps when the President fell down.
