I wear my back pack when riding my rackless old road bike to work. I leave the straps long and let the bag rest on the small of my back, just above the tailbone. Not only does that keep the bag and it's weight from pulling on my shoulders, but it allows for air circulation along my upper back.

It sometimes feels like the bag may fall off to the side, but it never does, even when reaching for the downtube shifters.
