    I wear bike gear in and then change. Leaving shoes and clothes at work really helps.

    I always wear cycling clothes, bib shorts in warm weather with knee warmers or tights over the shorts in cold weather.

    Yeah, I'd never wear pants on the bike. I leave a few outfits at work (remember to include socks, underwear, belt, etc...) and then just shower and get dressed there.

    Long pants- I'm shy and get embarrassed when the young babes in class start whistling and cat-calling.

    You can always play it safe by wearing break-away cargo pants. They are long pants that have zippers to allow them to be switched into shorts. Myself, I usually wear cargo shorts when it is warm. Less restriction on leg movement.

    I am lucky enough to have showers and a company change of clothes at work...I take full advantage of both.

    Same here. For my 13+ mile commute I get sweaty regardless of temperature. Plus, you never know when there will be a nasty puddle in the road.

    I just cover myself with chain grease and ride on in.
