Newton Mayor Setti Warren suffered minor injuries in Stow on Sunday when he was thrown from his bicycle after it hit a pothole, according to a statement from his gubernatorial campaign.

The Democratic candidate was on a 60-mile training ride for next month’s Pan-Mass Challenge when the accident occurred, his spokesman, Kevin Franck, said in the statement.

As a precaution, emergency medical technicians took Warren to Emerson Hospital, where he was released a few hours later, with orders to rest, Franck said.

“Mayor Warren looks forward to resuming his training for the Pan-Mass Challenge as soon as he is able,’’ Franck added.
