Went for this, getting it this afternoon
700c wheels are a good choice if you'll mainly be on road - less rolling resistance than 26" MTB style wheels so easier and quicker to pedal. 36 spokes so will be plenty strong enough for the odd tow path / hardpack trail (I take my winter road bike on towpaths with no problems). With those wheels and gearing it should be a decent ride on a longer trip if you fancy the odd 20 or 30 mile trip out in the countryside as well.
Hope you enjoy it
