You might want to consider a "Flat Bar" road bike - one with flat handle bars, twist shifters, and a more upright seating position. They usually have wider tires, and are better on varied terrain. One example is the Jamis Coda.

Or, for the cyclocross option, the Jamis Nova. I use mine to race cross, winter train. Great with fat tires and fenders for touring also.

I see a cross bike as a more viable option than a hybrid.
The Nova is an excellent bike. For us old guys (60), the more upright position of the Coda is easier on or backs!
