If all your rides are already on Strava, you should have a look at veloviewer which allows you to dig into it in ways Strava doesn't. You need to pay a small subcription (£10/year) to enjoy all of your rides, but if you do you have almost endless way to search through your activities as illustrated below.

You might find that a hybrid is just a compromise of road and offroad, and that you'd like to go one or the other ways but you won't know till you try.
