The first time MP on Tuesday left MPs and journalists at Parliament buildings elated as she rode a bicycle from her home to the National Assembly to attend to the day's proceedings.

Journalists scramble to take her photos as she cruised through Parliament's main gate accompanied by other female bicycle riders.

She rode the bike on Tuesday three days after she again rode from Nairobi's Central Business District's in Kenyatta Avenue to Panari Hotel along Mombasa road as she sought to notify Nairobians that they don't necessarily need to rely on Passenger Service Vehicles and private cars to drive to the city centre.

"Feeling elated for a successful ride from my home to Parliament this afternoon. Admittedly, cycling in Nairobi is a daunting task loaded with many risks, but that shouldn't be the case," Passaris said after arriving in Parliament.

One Sunday, she said her motive is to encourage Nairobi dwellers to embrace the use of bicycles as a way of controlling traffic jams in city roads.

Nairobi is among cities in the world with the most congested roads according to the 2017 Traffic Index lists. Some of the city's roads which are prone to traffic jams include Mombasa Road, Langata Road, Waiyaki Way, Thika Super Highway and Jogoo Road.
