Those look like racing type bikes, going by the pics (can't really tell, since I can't enlarge the pics). What you're looking for is, is a touring/commuter bike
What I would suggest is, is to check out a local bike store. Talk to the staff members about what you're looking for, as well as how much you're willing to spend, equipment included. A reputable store will find and properly fit a bike for you. Get an actual rack, not a seat post one for better load carrying capacity. Also, a handlebar mount mirror (Supercycle has a really good one) and lights, as well as a hi-vis vest if you have to ride after dark. I also recommend fenders. Not the seat post ones, but actual fenders.
This is only very general list, but it's a start.
