Meeting one bicycling Islington MP this week was an unusual occurrence for me but my encounter with Emily Thornberry earlier today following that of Jeremy Corbyn a few days earlier, also travelling by the same mode of transport, brings the total to two. It’s a fitting way for the president of the Commons All-party Cycling Group to get about. Mememorable quote of the conversation related to daredevil fellow MP cyclist Boris Johnson who is a constituent. Emily commented “He always gets home sooner than me. It might be something to do with the fact that I stop at lights”.
