A big question is what type of riding (and surfaces) you want to do. If you want to go out on club or group rides a road bike is the way to go. But, you can get a good work out with the flexibility of a Hybrid. Either way you can enjoy yourself and get that workout. I recommend buying a bike from local Bike Shop staffed by riders who take the time to listen to your desires and needs. Hybrid or Road bikes are not cheap. Take the time to find the right one and your get years of enjoyment.
A good Bike shop should help you decide and make sure your fitted with a bike. And like any type of exercise program a partner to help keep you motivated and away from mistakes is very helpful.
Good News is most riders and bike shops want to help. Enjoy!
