Yes! Go with clipless right away! Practice clipping in and out, until it's second nature, before actually riding.

Go to your nearest Jamis dealership and checkout there Satellite Series. The Satellite Comp is well within you budget.

Also, if your husband is a veteran cyclist and is somewhat mechanically inclined, there's always bikesdirect.com where you can save cash and upgrade.

Here's just a few recommendations:

1) www.bikesdirect.com/products/schwinn/schwinn_letour_legacy_xi.htm

2) www.bikesdirect.com/products/motobecane/ventnoir_xii.htm

Good Luck!

PS.

You can get nice functional helmets practically anywhere, including Walmart!

* If you are truly a "beginner", as in never, or seldom ever ridden a bike before, then just ignore my post!

If you're a "beginner", only in the sense that you've just recently taken on the actual sport of serious road biking, but you've both cycled before, then please consider my recommendations.
