We're kinda hybrids. A Raleigh and a Trek on the Erie Canal path that goes through town. Going on the streets is taking your life in your hands. Then there's the '91 Aspencade for the other times we don't feel like pedaling, but do want to take our life in our hands!

Both. But spend far more time doing charity rides - BikeMS, R4R, Tour de Cure.
Hybrids in places like Key West.

It's been too many years to really qualify. But when I used to ride, it was paved surfaces or nothing.

Rough trails? I'll put on my hiking boots!

Mountain bike when I get to ride, but that's not much these days.

We have what I call entry level mountain bikes, Trek 820s. Really well built bikes for a variety of conditions. We chose them over road bikes because we ride a lot of rails to trails with crushed gravel. That's not bad for road bikes until you get to a section that is rutted due to wash outs. I've seen road bikes being walked for 1/4 mile stretches on some of those trails because of this. The trails are pretty well maintained but when you get 30 miles away from any sizable city repairs aren't being done on a timely basis.

Voted both, but started out on the dirt side, and have always done more of my riding on the dirt side. Do enjoy the smooth side at times, but with the way crazy drivers are it makes it tougher to ride the road. Usually group rides have been when I (we) have been on the road bike(s).

Like already mentioned, haven't had much time to do any riding beyond when camping. Do miss it, especially this time of the year taking in some awesome sights!!!

A Schwinn Voyager 2 hybrid and a Honda Shadow Sabre are my two-wheeled rides. I stay on the pavement with both.

I'm both but really prefer drop bars and spend most of my time on bikes with drops. Not so much a roadie any more as most of my miles are split between a Surly LHT commuter, Salsa Warbird and a Marin 4 corners.
For actual road rides I still have a Vamoots ready to go.

The only non-drop bar I own at this point is a fat bike with Jones bars but it doubles as my year round mountain bike.

One of the best parts of camping is getting to ride in new places. Don't remember the last time we camped and didn't have at least my bike along.
