New to the scene

I live up in the Northwest, and have been riding for about 2 months now. I usually ride to work 3 days a week (25 miles round trip) It takes about 1.75 hours total. I started riding to get in better shape, and start training for Triathlons. Been running for years, but I want to step up to the Triís. I picked up a used 1970ís Bridgestone 10 speed, and have been riding this. One heck of a work out, not sure what kind of bike I am looking for even (as I am really new to this), but motivated and if I can survive the old 10 speeds, then a modern bike (what ever kind I need) should be much easier.
