VIDEO: President Joe Biden falls from his bicycle following beach ride near Delaware home

Joe Biden took a dramatic tumble while attempting to dismount from his bicycle during a morning ride in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware on Saturday. (Read More Here).

The 79-year-old biker had come to a stop to speak with some well-wishers near his vacation home, but instead stunned them (and his soon-to-be swarming Secret Service contingent) when he promptly fell over, legs still entangled in his bike. Biden, who was wearing a helmet and biking gloves, then got up and assured onlookers “I’m good!”

“I got my foot caught up,” he also reportedly explained.

The White House later blamed the president’s bike pedal for the mishap, claiming in a statement that, “his foot got caught on the pedal while dismounting and he is fine” and that “No medical attention is needed.”

While most people suffer embarrassing bike moments in relative privacy, an American president does not, particularly when it happens in broad daylight in front of the White House press pool with their smartphone cameras rolling. 

The bike-riding president’s eventful fall also made a scene online, where tepid takes and uninspired jokes quickly flourished, White House reporters offered their forward-thinking analysis, news organizations rushed up their posts, and critics like the coattail-riding adult son of a ramp-challenged former president sought to ascribe some larger-sounding meaning to what had happened. 

The president quickly collected himself and spent several minutes chatting with people who had gathered to watch him bike. Biden did not need medical attention and is "fine", according to a White House statement.

The Bidens are spending a long weekend at their Rehoboth Beach home. They marked their 45th wedding anniversary on Friday
