President Joe Biden took a tumble off his bike on Saturday while approaching the public in Delaware.

The president was near his Rehoboth Beach home, spending the weekend celebrating his 45th wedding anniversary with his wife, First Lady Jill Biden.

He fell off his bike around 9:30 a.m. near the public. “I’m good,” he said after the fall, which was recorded by the press.

“My foot got caught,” Biden added. He was having difficulty removing his shoe from the bike pedal which led to the fall. A spokesperson from the White House said the President did not require medical attention.

“As the President said, his foot got caught on the pedal while dismounting and he is fine. No medical attention is needed. The President looks forward to spending the rest of the day with his family,” the official said.

He spoke with reporters after getting back up, sharing his opinion on the bipartisan gun reform framework being discussed in Washington, D.C.

“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,” he said.
