Hi AmyN,
Welcome to Ragbrai. I found these stats for last year’s ride.
“RAGBRAI riders use a variety of bike types:

Road Bike – 80.5%
Hybrid – 9.9%
Tandem – 3.4%
Recumbent – 2.4%
Mountain Bike – 2.1%
Other – 0.8%
Trike – 0.6%
Tandem-Recumbent – 0.3%”

Repeating what others have said, ride whatever bike you are comfortable on. Get used to riding for several hours a day and several days in a row. There will be an optional gravel route one day so a mountain bike would be best there. The rest of the days will be paved so you are smart to go with the hybrid. The smoother treads will make it easier on the hard surface. I’m sure you will enjoy your first Ragbrai adventure!
