“I’m fine”: Biden falls off his bike during a trip to Delaware with the First Lady

The 79-year-old president, accompanied by Secret Service agents, was driving at some speed towards the turn before he braked to talk to the crowd wishing him a “Happy Father’s Day” and overturned.

Dr. Jill Biden has already made a turn and missed her husband’s fall. Biden’s unexpected dismounting occurred after he stopped and was unable to free his bicycle shoes from the socks on the pedals.

When asked if he was all right, Biden replied: “I’m fine.” When asked what caused the fall, Biden said that the “toe cages” on his bike got caught.

He briefly studied with journalists. When asked if he was happy with the progress in gun legislation, Biden replied: “I’m happy in Delaware. Did you see what they did in Delaware? A ban on assault weapons has been adopted. They did what I did years ago. But I’m happy with the progress.”

Biden, wearing bright blue shoes, a gray T-shirt, dark blue shorts and a white helmet, got back on his bike. —Okay, guys, see you later,” he said.
