That is a great bike, and should be well-suited to the kinds of riding you describe.

As to tire clearance, what year is your Elite? If it is a 2015 (?; far as I know the '16 is disc only), you should have easy clearance for 32s if you like, and should be able to go as large as 35 with that frame/fork, even with v-brakes. My Sirrus (Comp) is a '10; it has much tighter clearances than yours and I use 32s currently with room for a 33 cyclocross tire if I wanted.
