comment Hybrid or Road Bike?
@mattnz I totally disagree with you on the point that a slower bike will help you achieve fitness goals better. I can work just as hard on my light racing bike as I can on a heavy commuter. The only difference is how much fun I'm having on the faster, more comfortable bike. Getting a heavy bike just for the sake of adding weight is just silly.

comment How can I mitigate the risk of public urination charges on long rides?
Answering the question is a whole lot harder for women for obvious biological reasons. Here is my first idea though: amazon.com/Go-Girl-Female-Urination-Lavender/dp/B003BEDUS6. I cannot say how well this or similar products work, as biology prevents me from testing them myself, but it is a start...

comment How hard is a category 2 climb?
Are you planning this ride as a daily commute? If so you may need to consider things like sweat and body odor in the office. More information about the rest of the commute would be helpful too such as the total distance, whether there is downhill for the rest of the commute, etc.

comment How hard is a category 2 climb?
As the friend @amcnabb mentions, I can vouch for this story, although I would note that "coax" is probably too gentle of a verb :p That said, the feeling on that third weekend up Squaw Peak when I made it without stops was both incredible and surprisingly soon in my training. I also second the suggestion that you consider a compact gearing - my bike has a standard double and is significantly harder without a proper granny gear to keep the legs spinning...
