Hybrids get their name because their design is a mix of both mountain and road bike, with the result being a bicycle that is perfect for general purpose everyday riding on various types of terrain - whether popping to the shops, heading out for a spin on the road or a cycle way, or just cruising around town. Hybrids are the perfect leisure or commuter bike, and make those family bike rides or journeys from A to B enjoyable.
Hybrids tend to have a flat handlebar like a mountain bike, which offers an upright riding position so that you have comfort and good visibility around you as you ride. Rigid forks or suspension is down to personal preference and tyres tend to be larger volume, again offering more comfort, and hybrids are the perfect bike to fit mud guards, kickstands, racks, pannier bags, baskets...whatever you want to make it work for you, and carry your belongings or shopping as you go about your day.
