For general-pupose cycling a hybrid is almost certainly the way to go. Mountain bikes with wide knobbly tyres can be hard work on-road - up to 15% of your cycling effort can be lost in the tyres, so probably not a good idea for 90 Km, unless you can get different tyres fitted.

As regards the Lombardo visoke treking bike I note from the Tesco website that this is a self-assembly bike; if you buy one secondhand how do you know if it has been assembled correctly? I've seen a few examples of such bikes, even assembled by someone from the store. which are incorrectly assembled and/or badly adjusted, to the point of either being dangerous to use or unpleasant to ride. You might get lucky, but you need an expert to check the bike over before purchase.
