Biden bike fell after flipping dismount, but was not injured

Rehoboth Beach, Tel., June 18 (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden picked up a leak from his bike Saturday to greet supporters during a weekend trip to Rehoboth Beach in Delaware.

Immediately got up and looked up and there was no injury. “I’m fine,” Biden, 79, said after a scuffle in front of reporters. “I’ll have a leg,” he said.

The president, who was wearing a bike helmet, said he had to remove the leg cages on his bike after his leg got stuck before he could stabilize himself.

Afterwards, Biden chatted for several minutes with those gathered to watch the bike.

Biden and first lady Jill Biden were finishing their morning bike ride in the Gordons Bond area off the coast of Delaware. Their 45th wedding anniversary was celebrated on Friday.

The White House says the president does not need medical attention.

“As the president said, his leg got stuck in the bicycle while he was getting off, and he is fine,” said a White House official, who did not want to be named. “The president is looking forward to spending the whole day with his family.”

Asked how he felt when he left the church late Saturday, Biden made a series of hops before getting into his vehicle.
