1 on Hybrid
I've been surprised how well the upright Trek 720 (late 80s, after the numbering switched from the touring road bike to the hybrid bike) rides. I think it was named "multi-track", or somesuch. I rode one down in FL (my brother in law's) during a recent vacation - surprisingly responsive, clearance for fenders, adequate gear range, no frills, CrMo frame w/unicrown fork. Even with the upright geometry and bars, I was comfortable for ~40 mile rides no problems.
You should be able to pick one of these up for less than $100.
