Budding cyclophile from Seattle

Hello all!
I'm 25 years old, 6'1", married with a daughter. I've always enjoyed biking, but previously it has been on a mountain bike and limited miles. Since I got my first road bike last year, I've been getting the fever to spend more time in the saddle. I recently made the commitment to commute to work, which is about 11.5 miles with a pretty nice hill in the middle. Right now I'm just trying to figure out the safest, most comfortable to do this regardless of weather, and I'm learning so much!
