DALLAS (AP) – Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert is recovering after wrecking while riding his bicycle and breaking a couple of ribs.

Leppert, at Wednesday’s city council meeting, at times appeared to wince from the pain.

Leppert says he took a tumble off his mountain bike on Saturday. The 56-year-old mayor was wearing a helmet.

Leppert, who says he injured three ribs, plans to maintain his regular schedule. He was elected mayor in 2007.
