President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha spent Friday morning on a leisurely bike ride on their vacation in Martha’s Vineyard. President Obama says he’s having a “great time as always” during his stay on Martha’s Vineyard.
President Obama and his family have been on the island for about a week. Today’s bike ride through Manuel F. Correllus State Forest was one of the first times during his vacation the Obamas have had to themselves. Members of the press have surrounded the president and his family for most of their time in Martha’s Vineyard, including during part of the family bike ride.
The president may be on vacation once again, but he has managed to keep up with world news. National Security Adviser Susan Rice has briefed Obama on the crisis in Egypt, prompting the President to cancel the military exercises and even consider cutting aid with the Egyptian government.
President Obama will return to the White House on Sunday.
