Q&A: Can you really ride faster than you drive?

Rob asks:

I’ve read different places that people can actually get to work quicker riding their bike than driving their car.   This doesn’t seem feasible to me, especially since my commute is twice as long when I ride.

So is it true that there are bike commuters out there that actually save time by riding instead of driving.   If so, how do they do it and how much time does it save them?
