I'm going to commute to work for the first time tomorrow. I work in an office building and need to dress professionally - I'm a receptionist so I'm in contact with many people. You can see my route at http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=217734. It's only about 6 miles and mostly downhill going to work. Here are my questions to you:
1) My work has showers and lockers and I'm wondering if I should count on having to shower tomorrow when I get to work, or if I should be ok with a washcloth and some soap? (I'll take a shower when I get home after my big uphill ride)
2) I will be wearing my cycling clothing on the ride, so I'll have to pack clothing and change there and all I've got is a backpack - any tips on brining nice clothing to work? Any tips on storing cycling clothing in a half-locker so that they're not disgusting when I put them on at the end of the day?
3) Any other advice on tidying up after your commute so that you look professional?
Thanks in Advance! I'm a little bit terrified and a whole lot excited about tomorrow
