(CNN) — President Joe Biden is “fine” after falling off his bike during a ride at a state park near his home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware on Saturday, a White House official said.
No medical attention is required, the official added in a statement released to reporters traveling with the president.
“As the President said, his foot got caught in the pedal while dismounting and he is fine. No medical treatment is required. The President looks forward to spending the rest of the day with his family,” the official said.
Biden fell while finishing a bike ride alongside First Lady Jill Biden. The President broke away from the group as he pedaled toward a crowd that had gathered nearby. Biden came to a stop and appeared to catch his foot on the pedal as he tried to dismount.
“I got my foot trapped” on the toe cage, Biden later told reporters traveling with him. “I’m doing well.”
US Secret Service agents quickly got the President back on his feet after his fall.
The crowd clapped as the president, who turns 80 in November, got back on his feet. Biden then chatted with the crowd for a few minutes, bringing a bystander to his feet his dog commander.
When asked by a kid in the crowd what it was like to run the country, Biden joked, “Oh, it’s like any other job.”
“Some parts are easy, some are difficult,” he added.
The Bidens are spending the long weekend at their Rehoboth Beach home, in part to celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary.
