Anything that's comfortable, with a reasonable gear range should be fine.

My wife has done the GVBR on a $300 Apollo hybrid, 21 speed.
Only upgrade was a new seat and new tyres. She had no problems riding this type of bike on the GVBR.

Mind you since then it has had a whole new drive train and new bottom bracket, as well as repacked wheel bearings.

This was 2 of the moderators doing the GVBR about 10 years ago.

Sunburyprince aka Ben is on the recumbent and me on the MTB.
