I'm in the 2nd week of bike commuting to work. 6.5 miles to work (get dropped off near trail) and 9.5 miles home. Downhill on the way in & uphill on the way back. Still figuring out how best to transport clothes and lunch without wrinkling and smashing. Also figuring out what to ride in since I have no cycling clothes.
Riding a 1993 Trek Aluminum 1200 (that's what the frame says). Putting things in a rear bag bungeed to rear rack. In the bag are two plastic tubs to prevent smashing things.
Know nothing about bikes.
From Falls Church, VA.

When I commute to work I roll my clothes like I would when packing a suitcase. I have found some fabrics travel a little better than others.
If you already have a rack on your bike, you might consider getting some panniers to put your food and clothes in. That will go a long way in preventing smashing and wrinkling.
