I tell people who don't bike that a big reason I bike instead of run is because I can go faster and further and, therefore, see more stuff. Suffering, but with great views (for the best rides). My stupid expensive bike is 10% faster than my merely expensive bike and I absolutely can't wait to take more trips with it (especially to Europe) and be able to see just a little bit more when I go ride for the same effort.
Might as well end the debate after this post. It definitely answers all of the questions.
