Kerry Uninjured in Fall From Bicycle

CONCORD, Mass. - Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry (news - web sites) took a spill from his bicycle while riding Sunday afternoon but was not injured, a campaign official said.

Kerry was riding with Secret Service agents through Concord, about 18 miles north of Boston, when his bike hit a patch of sand and he fell, campaign officials said.

"He's fine. They took the bike into the bike shop and he went home," said campaign spokesman Michael Meehan.

Kerry was in Massachusetts — he has a home in Boston — enjoying a break from the campaign trail. It was not immediately clear on what road in Concord he was biking.

Kerry, 60, rides his bicycle as often as he can and sometimes brings it with him on the campaign plane.

I saw an earlier Fox clip where Kerry was departing an aircraft and he stumbled like Gerald Ford and then turned around and pointed at something as if nothing happened or it was a conspiracy by the VRW. Nothing was ever said about his stumble. But the media played Ford's stumbles over and over and GWB falling off a "Segway" over and over.

But he's still metrosexually color-coordinated.

Exactly. Matching can go too far -- to the point where it looks...flamboyant. Even the little cap on his waterbottle matches.

I don't know what it is, but nearly every pic of Kerry makes him look plastic, fake, just not real. Maybe the camera is really capturing his true image. But in the photo-op pix he doesn't look real.

1) As someone else has already noted, Kerry's legs are to skinny to belong to someone who rides much.

2) Question: Check out the letters on the bike frame. Do they spell P-E-U-G-O-T?

All joking and laughter aside,
I totally agree with you.
He's so .... (is it stiff?) or
poised, or unnatural looking?
Terribly odd.
And he's such a colossal bore.
What Mr$. Heinz saw or sees in him is beyond me.

One of his flip-flops must have gotten caught in the sprocket, causing him to fall. Kinda like his campaign.

Where are the photos of him being tossed? We have the ones of Bush bumping his head on the helicopter and falling off that scooter thingy.

Does he have a serious neurological disease? He seems to fall down a lot.

He definitely has neurological issues.

Also, note that he's riding without eye protection, a sure way to get wind irritation, or something worse, in one's eyes. Wouldn't want to cover up that botox face, now, would we?

One of those SOB's guarding him. We all know Kerry doesnt fall. The Secret Service with him probably catches as much hell as they do with Hitlery.

Serotta...not an inexpensive bike. Custom paint. I believe they're made in the US.

$5,000 or whereabouts with Dura-Ace and carbon fork.

I've fallen while riding a bike before but when I did, I just got back up on it and continued riding. Unlike John Kerry who has his gophers take away his bike and drive him home. What a wuss.

It costs 7 grand

I have seen professional touring bikes that run about $3,000 plus

How in the world can a bike cost $7,000?

That's about the same as a decent used car!!!
