New to biking and looking for a bike - NO.VA

Hey everyone, I'm looking to pick up biking as a hobby and was not sure what type of bike would best suite my needs, so I was hoping someone here could help me.

Here are a few things about me/ my preference:
Like a slightly relaxed seating position (I sat on a road bike and though it was a little big, I did not like being hunched over)
looking for something that does look some what stylish
looking for something that would be mainly used for exercise, but may want to commute to work once I feel up to it (only about 7 mi)
was hoping to keep the price range less than 300 used

Thanks for the help!

Welcome to BF.

Sounds like you're looking for a flat bar road bike.
If you know your size you should be able to find something on craigslist for $300.
Ask the folk in the General Cycling forum for their thoughts on any bikes you find.

Thanks,
Is there any key words I should use in a search?
Also is there a big difference between road and hybrid?
