for the kind of riding you mention, you want a more upright position. So you want a larger frame so the height of the bars is close to the height of the seat.
I ride a 56 and am 2 inches shorter than you. My clothing inseam is ~ 32, but measured as should be done for a bike, it's 33. I suspect same is true for you - meaning you if you use the link above, your probably a 34 for bike purposes, so I'd suggest 58.
