Hi :)

I took my bicycle to work yesterday because my car broke down.

I rode my bicycle to work yesterday because my car broke down.

I went to work by bicycle yesterday because my car broke down.

I went to work on my bicycle yesterday because my car broke down.

Are they all interchangeable and commonly used by native speakers?

    They're all acceptable, but the most commonly used would be the second ("rode my bicycle"). Next would be the third ("by bicycle"). In both cases, we'd more likely say bike.
