The type of tires on your hybrid will mean a lot when attempting a century. Smoother tires with low rolling resistance inflated to a high level will make the ride on your bike more like a road bike. I have seen people show up for a century with knobby mud-skipper tires and these will definitely make the ride more difficult and less enjoyable.
