The internet can be a funny place sometimes! In a bizarre turn of events, people found the location of Joe Biden’s infamous bike fall in Delaware, renamed ‘Brandon Falls’ on Google Maps.
Biden fell from his bike while enjoying a ride through Delaware in June this year. Now Twitter users have posted some screenshots showing the exact location where the accident occurred, listed as a historical landmark on Google Maps.
‘Brandon Falls’ Landmark Appears on Google Maps
Multiple users on Twitter started sharing screenshots today in which ‘Brandon Falls’ was listed as a historical landmark at the exact place where Biden fell a month ago. The name is a take on the infamous ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ statement made by an NBC reporter when a crowd chant was misheard during an interview with NASCAR driver Brandon Brown.
The Twitter account of the individual who listed the place on maps has also been identified. The account goes by the username @oldrowviral, a content creator who is famous for posting conservative memes.
The account also recently encouraged the use of the term ‘Bidening’, which they define as the act of intentionally falling off a bike, taking a photograph or video of the fall, and then posting it online.
The Landmark has Now Been Removed by Google
After the screenshots started trending on social media, Google seemed to have taken note of it and removed the landmark from maps. Before being removed, the location had already gotten over 200 five-star reviews.
Google Maps has a feature that allows users to create public landmarks on the platform. While this helps local businesses to be visible online, the feature has also been misused by many to create fake locations.

Biden Fell Off his Bike Last Month
President Joe Biden had fallen off his bike near his Delaware beach home in June. The president was in Delaware to celebrate his 45th wedding anniversary with his wife. The incident happened when Biden tried to stop the bike to greet reporters but his foot got stuck.
The video of him falling down also went viral. He was seen wishing people happy Father’s Day before he fell in the video. Biden was unable to release his bike shoes from the toe cages, which caused him to fall.
Witnessing the accident, people around him rushed to ask if he was alright, to which he replied, “I’m good.”
