Personally I'd recommend what I did many years back and get a cheap as chips old steel framed bike for £30 -60,see if you like road bikes and then buy a decent bike based on better knowledge and experience.

The bike you link to is heavy and with steel forks it won't be the most comfy bike on the road.

If you want to take a chance and get straight onto a reasonable bike then I'd go second hand with a major named bike such as Giant,Trek,Specialized etc.
