    Would be OK for walking. Those domed LEDs don't have alot of throw. Most look like half or three quarters moon light on the ground out to about 10-15 foot.
    Not bright enough for biking in the woods.

    I would definitely go with something else. As mentioned, those type of lights just don't "throw". Sure they light up a small room nicely, but they won't light up the road/trail in.front of you.
    That light would only be good for letting people see you.

    You didn't mention what kind of riding you'll be doing. If you want a light to light things up in front of you, and you want to stay in that price range, here are two good options:

    1. These lights put off a very nice even flood light, but can be adjusted to give you more of a spot light too - http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.18697

    2. This one is a few dollars more, but I saw a beam shot photo in a "shootout" and was quite impressed! - http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.13095
    You can see the beam shot on this page - http://fonarevka.lux-rc.com/
