Carrera Subway 2 compared to a drop handlebar road bike?

I am currently using a Carrera Subway 2 hybrid bike and now that I have pedal clips, bar ends and really thin 100psi tyres the bike is running well and I am currently averaging 16MPH over a 20 mile journey.

I am doing the Great Yorkshire Bike Ride next May with a mate who has a road bike, and although I am not slow on the bike I just wondered if trading my hybrid bike in for a road bike would potentially make me lots faster?

Any thoughts?
Speciallized Allez 09...great bike shame about the wheels!!

    unlikely to make much - if any difference. fitness, stamina and leg strength will make the most difference, irrespective of the bike you ride..
