The Office, "Diwali" episode, (2006)

In this episode of the American version of the UK TV show created by Ricky Gervais, Jim Halpert, the lovable loser played by John Krasinski, decides to ride his bicycle to work. He arrives sweaty and exhausted. At the end of the episode, he gets drunk and crashes his bike into a bush. He is then driven home, with his bicycle tossed in the back of an SUV. The UK version of The Office never actually shows a bicycle, though there is one episode in which Gareth Keenan, the loser played by Mackenzie Crook, is shown stretching in an absurd manner after riding to work in a spandex outfit. One of the less common foreign examples of The Law noted in Clause B.

But what about the boss of Stamford branch? It was Josh Porter (played by Chip Esten) that inspired Jim to ride a bicycle to begin with.
