You will also need 2 water bottles. I use the Camelback Podium ones, but any soft bottle with a large spout gives a big gulp from a small squeeze is good. We dont get it as hot or humid as you get it there, but it isnt too bad as long as you dont try to achieve a personal best time. My commute is 17 miles each way and I am a not too fit 68 yr old - I only do it a couple of times a week. I use a cyclocross bike, which feels fast and nimble without sacrificing comfort. Take your time to find really good fitting shoes, spending whatever $s it takes, then save money on the pedals. It will also be worth getting jerseys (Target or W'mart if you need to save $) and cycling shorts.
