    I bike in my office pants. I have fenders. I always have a spare pair at work in case of unforeseen circumstances, like getting splashed with mud by another vehicle, etc.

    Since you weren't going to work....

    By the way this discussion is all in fun. It doesn't matter a damn how you define a bicycle commuter or if there is even a consensus.
