OPINION: This article contains commentary which may reflect the author's opinion

President Biden has made a habit of falling, repeatedly falling on the steps of Air Force One and falling while playing with his dog and breaking his foot.

Biden also recently fell on his way to appearing on the Jimmy Kimmel show.

Noting that the only thing falling quicker than Biden on a bike is Biden’s popularity, Conservative Brief reported on the latest falling event by showing the transcript, by Nikki Schwab:

At 8:29 a.m. the president biked by the pool, surrounded by agents.

“Good morning,” he told the pool, giving us a wave.

He’s wearing bright blue shoes and a white helmet. Also a grey t-shirt and Navy shorts.

Several members of the pool shouted “Mr. President!” at him but he breezed by before questions were asked.

Dr. Biden was not with him.

At 9:40 the president took a tumble off his bike as he stopped to say hello to the crowd. Secret Service swarmed him and he got up and then started talking to the crowd.

At 9:22 a.m. first lady Jill Biden went by on her own, also with her detail.

She’s wearing a magenta top, black pants and sporting a silver helmet.

About 30 or so beach goers caught wind of Biden’s presence and are standing near the pool.

“I’m good” from fall

“I’m good,” the president said when pool asked if he was OK after he fell, he said he had trouble taking his biking shoes out of the pedals. He had bike clips in.

He pulled a woman out of the crowd to meet Commander. He spoke with the crowd.

He answered a few questions from the pool as well.

He will speak to Xi “soon.”

“We’re in the process of doing that,” he said when asked about rethinking China tariffs.

“In Delaware I am,” he said when asked about progress on gun control.

“Did you see what they did in Delaware?” He said of an assault weapons ban.

“I am happy with progress I am ready to sign it,” he said of the Congressional bill.

At 9:44 a.m. he got back on the bike and sped off.

Sending better quotes in a bit.

Conservative Brief reported that Dr. Biden kept going so she missed her husband’s fall. He stopped and came over to the waiting crowd, tried to unclip, and fell over sideways, creating a mad scramble of Secret Service and press. Observers had tried to tell Biden “Happy Father’s Day.” He stood up right away and talked to the crowd before coming closer to the press – answering the questions below. There were no visible scrapes or bruises from the spill.

Those watching video of the fall were astounded that Biden just fell over while standing still. Now specifics on the bike he was riding have come to light and the mystery is solved.

Conservative brief continues that the bike is allegedly a Trek FX 1 Disc, described as a lightweight hybrid bike that is designed to be ridden over varying types of terrain, The New York Post reported.

A former employee of the company identified the model, which he said was sold for $599.99, to The Post with “high confidence,” but said that “it’s really hard to tell — that thing is ancient.”

In 2020 Bicycling Magazine examined Biden’s bike as the same model and explained some of the features of the model.

“From what we could see in the photos, it had a Bontrager cockpit, linear pull rim brakes, and a rusty chain well past its prime. He came prepared for the ride with a headlight, and all of the bike’s reflectors are still intact,” it said.

“The bike was adorned with a few more accessories than what a regular rider may have: A coiled cable lock around the seat, a single bottle cage, a CatEye Wireless Computer, and a bento box. A little bar end mirror helped Biden keep an eye on his full surroundings and Trek helmet kept the former VP extra safe. Also, the toe cages on his flat pedals make us feel like when the paparazzi aren’t looking, Biden really likes to rip,” it said.

On Saturday he did not “rip” but he did trip. And it was those toe cages that the president blamed for his fall as he said his foot got caught on it.

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

The Trek source said that it is not wise for a less agile bike rider to be using those pedal cages.

“I’d say nothing wrong with riding a bike at his age,” they said. “But he needs a bike that’s easier to get on and off.”

“Less agile” possibly refers to someone who repeatedly falls when not on a bike.
