Which bike?

Hello,

I want to buy a new bike this week but, unfortunately, I know very little about them. I would like a bike which I can use for rides in the countryside on both rugged terrain and roads. My last bike was a mountain bike which was ok apart from the saddle which was a bit uncomfortable and the handle bars, I could have done with ones which were more like those on a racing bike.
Before I go out this week to look, does anyone know of a good make of bike which is sturdy, comfortable for long rides, reasonably light-weight and good value for money (I'm willing to go up to £500), either a mountain bike or a road bike? I've heard Trek bikes are supposed to be good. Any info to steer me in the right direction would be much appreciated

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet
