Joe Biden Falls Off Bike video
US President Joe Biden was riding his bicycle near his seaside house in Delaware on Saturday morning when he fell, but he was unharmed.
The 79-year-old president was seen instantly standing up following his fall, according to a White House pool report. “I’m OK,” he says afterward.
He had stopped to chat to passersby while riding with First Lady Jill Biden in a state park near their beach house in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

The president admitted to a small audience of well-wishers and reporters that he had lost his balance while attempting to free a foot from a bike clip.
The result was “a frenzied rush of Secret Service and journalists,” according to a White House pool report, which also said that no obvious scratches or bruises were sustained as a consequence of the fall.
“There is no need for medical treatment,” a White House official said. “The President anticipates spending the remainder of the day with his family.”
As the oldest US president, Biden’s health is constantly scrutinized, especially as speculation grows about whether he will seek re-election in 2024.
BREAKING: Joe Biden FALLS OFF his bike in Delaware
Biden fractured his foot while playing with his beloved German shepherds in November 2020, soon after his election but before starting office.
Biden’s doctor granted him a clean bill of health a year later, in November 2021, characterizing him as “healthy” and “vigorous.”
In a photo taken in Delaware, Biden just beefed it up on his bike.
When he took a few questions from reporters on Saturday, Biden said he was “in the process of making up my mind” about reducing certain Trump-era tariffs on Chinese imports in order to reduce inflationary pressures.
He said that he will shortly talk with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
When asked whether he was content with progress on gun legislation in the wake of mass killings in Texas and New York, Biden answered simply that he was pleased with his home state of Delaware’s action, which included a ban on assault-style weapons.
