Is the hybrid Giant"Green Park" a good bike? I´m planing to hit the roads as a complement training and I haven´t had a Giant bike before.

If you already have a Mountain Bike, a hybrid does not make too much sense. You can get an entry level road bike for about $600 now. If you want something you can take of road as well, you can buy a cyclocross bike. Everyone I know who buys a hybrid usually ends up wishing they either bought a road or mountain bike.

If money is an object buy a pair of slicks or semi-slicks to ride on the road with your mountain bike. You can also get a cheap wheelset so you do not have to swap out the tires each ride.
