Joe Biden falls off bike riding near Delaware beach home
President Biden fell off his bike as he took a ride near his Rehoboth Beach, Del. vacation home Saturday
Secret Service agents swarmed the 79-year-old commander in chief and helped him get upright.
“I’m good, I’m good,” Biden said, telling pool reporters that he tumbled when one of his shoes got stuck in a toe cage on a pedal.
Biden set off around 8:30 am, surrounded by security agents, and tooled around the bike paths of Delaware Seashore State Park.
An hour later, he pulled away from his wife Jill – who continued on along the path – and cruised over to a group of about 30 curious locals who had gathered near the press pool to watch him pass by.
“Happy Father’s Day,” a woman said, as others clapped.
But the crowd’s greetings turned to gasps as the president keeled over to his right, falling on his elbow and his knee.
Agents scrambled to his aid, standing him up within moments. No cuts or scrapes from the fall were visible, reporters said.
