Hi @lv_sunshine. I"m not a bike expert by any means but I do bike at least once a week and have both a hybrid and a road bike. I use them both and my best advice is if you are going to be doing rides over 25 miles (which is very easy to do) I'd recommend a road bike. You can do longer rides on a hybrid but it does wear you out faster than a road bike over the same distance. My one exception is if I know I'll be on surfaces other than pavement, I usually take the hybrid. Hope that helps and good luck!
