I believe you've got it right. That's why I reccommended that you get yourself an HR. Try to keep your heart rate around 70-75% of your max HR, and your cadence around 80-90 rpm, and you'll be burning fat efficiently, while building up your cardio. Don't forget to warm up, stretch, and stretch again after your ride, and the 35 miles trip will be a piece of cake. Best wishes.
