Bikes are awesome.
What kind did you get? Do you have a link.
I have an old GT Zaskar I've been banging the heck out of for the last 15 years. Great bike.

I've modified it over the years to be a lot more comfortable and a lot less hard core. Higher handle bars. Better seat. No more toe clip pedals, but I might go back. It has 3 gears in front and 7 in the back with shimano indexed shifters and V-brakes. Amazingly durable.

I too am to old for the running. Bikes are a great solution. You see more country and you can really work out hard. I have a 40 to 50 mile loop I can do from my house and I'm only on a street for 100 yards.
