I would get one where the pads flip up. That way, if you get tired of riding aero, the pads will flip up and you can put your hands on the bars. It gives you one more option other than the drops.

I have a hybrid. The bar is not as high as a road bike and not as low as the traditional girls bike. It also has slightly wider tires than a road bike so I can do some trails or rough roads easier.

Most of the races in Ontario have duathlons in them so you'll have lots of options. A duathlon is typically a run, bike, run. The swim of the triathlon is replaced with an additional run.

Had a nice run today at - 22 ( -8 F). The wind is what kills me so I'm on the trainer when it gets cold and run outside for the fresh air.

Here in Northern Ontario, the winters are long and the roads are awful. I put a movie on and chug away on the trainer for a good part of the year. It's a great tool.

For me, multisport is the answer. Your body gets efficient if you just do one activity all the time. I run and swim during the winter. It works wonders.
