During the last day full day of the first family's summer vacation on Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, the Obamas on Saturday took a bike ride through the Manuel F. Correllus State Forest in West Tisbury, Mass., according to the Cape Cod Times.

On Sunday the president and his family are expected to end their two-week stay on the island, where the family chilled at the same seven-bedroom, nine-bath vacation home in Chilmark, where they stayed last summer.  


Despite the threat of rain, the family on Saturday whizzed past the press on bikes about 11:42 a.m. with Secret Service agents in tow. First daughter Sasha rode through the crowd first, followed by first lady Michelle Obama, Malia and then President Barack Obama, who called out to the press: "Hello, everybody. Having fun?" the report says.

Michelle Obama and the girls were wearing short-sleeved shirts and dark pants, according to pool reports. President Obama wore a gray, long-sleeved shirt and black pants with blue-and-black tennis shoes.

Geoff Thompson of New York City, who is on vacation, told the Cape Cod Times that he was biking with his wife when he encountered the first family.

“They all came by, a huge entourage; saw the whole family, saw the kids and Michelle,” he told the Times. “Obama went by and said, ‘Hi, folks,’ and we were like, ‘Oh, hi, Mr. President.’”


He added: “It was kinda cool to see the president,” according to the Times.
