I need a bicycle. What should I get, what brands to consider, which brands to avoid?

Gonna take the plunge and use the bike to go back and forth between work, maybe ride the 15 miles out to the beach from time to time. I live in flat, coastal city, with a few bike lanes, but not many bike paths. So my instinct to get a mountain bike may not be correct. I am a 6 ft male, budget of around $200, maybe $300 if it's really worth it.
If there's a particular bag you'd recommend for carrying a change of clothing, that would be great.
