Getting a bike for commuting


I live a few miles from my office and there is an off road cycle path all the way there from my house, with minimal hillage.

I have been thinking of getting a bike for a while and I have the opportunity to get a free one from work, for my 10 years service. I could get a DVD recorder or camera but I have those.

The options are all Dawes bikes and I could get an XC 1.4 with disc brakes or a road bike, I can't remember the names of those options but they will be similar prices.

What would be my best option?

I had a Dawes years ago but sold it to pay for my second years car insurance when I was 20. I'm older and fatter these days so will be using this as good exercise.
