    I'll tuck my pant leg into my sock ... but I'll also change into my bike shoes.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    I tuck into socks - sure it looks goofy, but one less thing to worry about losing while I'm out.

    Nice, but are those shoes SPD-compatible?

    heh, no, not spd-compatible, but my cycling shoes that are back with my clothes are. I was going less than a mile and I have the campus style pedals, so I ran in platform mode.

    I keep an emergency stash of food in my office for those times, or walk to nearby restaurants. That is one of the drawbacks to bike commuting, however, depending on how you view it. I seldom go out to lunch any more now that I bike commute most of the time, but it saves me a lot of money from eating out.

    That is great!! I previously used packing tape...but just recently purchased a hi-viz velcro ankle strap that works like a charm.

    Ride safe,

    I just roll my pant leg up, which is what I do anyway.. unless it's summer when i'm wearing shorts.

    I have faux-leather ankle straps, but that's a pretty good idea.
