US President Joe Biden had a brief awkward moment when he fell off his bike as he was trying to get off it, after a ride near his beach home in the US state of Delaware.
The ageing US president is spending quality time with his wife Jill Biden at Rehoboth Beach and having fallen in love with the ambience, he decided to go for a ride with her and other members of the secret service.
Everything was going as planned but when he stopped midway to greet a few supporters in the hood, he went straight to the ground while he was trying to get off the bike.
Asked if he was OK, Biden responded: “I’m good.” Asked what caused the fall, Biden said the “toe cages” on his bike got caught.
He briefly engaged with reporters. Asked if he is satisfied with progress on gun legislation, Biden said: “In Delaware, I am. Did you see what they did in Delaware? Passed an assault weapons ban.
They did what I did years ago. But I am happy with the progress.” Biden, wearing bright blue shoes, a grey T-shirt, navy shorts and a white helmet, got back on his bike. “Alright guys, see you,” he said.
