Parliamentary bike commute

Emily Thornberry is a member of Parliament and a regular bike commuter.
As a member of parliament, my four-mile round commute to Westminster takes under half an hour (with the trip back, uphill after the 10 o'clock vote, taking a bit longer). It is by far the quickest way to get to the House of Commons. In fact, most traffic in London moves at the same speed it did a century ago - barely 10mph. On a bike you can easily keep up with or beat that speed.—Guardian Unlimited, Saturday June 16, 2007.
In the article she discusses some of the common myths that people claim prevent them from commuting by bike.
