Limo to Number 10 No, Samantha Cameron prefers pedal power as she arrives at Downing Street on her bike
01:54 GMT, 22 March 2012
With VIP transport at her disposal, Samantha Cameron has no need to exert herself.
But whether it was the desire for exercise or just some fresh air on a bright spring day, she chose to get on her bike.
In fashion terms, her outing was never going to rival those glitzy moments with the Obamas at the White House last week.
Pedal power: Samantha Cameron arrives at No 10 on her bike yesterday in an outfit which was a far cry from her glamorous get-up she wore for the White House state dinner with the Obamas last week
The Prime Minister’s wife was spotted arriving at the back door of Number 10 yesterday morning, showing she values safety over style by tucking her long hair inside a cycle helmet.
Wearing a khaki hooded coat, jeans and plimsolls, her sensible outfit was a far cry from her attire last week, when she visited the U.S. with her husband.
Among her glamorous outfits for the visit was a long blue lace dress by British designer Alessandra Rich, which she wore for a White House state dinner.
