Apache SSL redirect

So I have this secure shopping cart RoR project. I want people to simply navigate to the web address but when they get there I want them to automatically be moved over the the SSL version. I was looking for a simply solution one that I could very easily implement without changing much of the code of the site. Here is how I did it.
In Apache Virtual Host file on the *:80 config I have this set.
<VirtualHost *:80>
     ServerName subdomain.domain.com
     Redirect / https://subdomain.domain.com/
     ServerAlias subdomain.domain.com

This will direct any of the information coming in on the port 80 over to the 443/https portion of the website. Make sure you have the HTTP portion configured properly.
