I walk and ride my mountain bike for exercise, recently got back into resistance training, how important is that to an overall exercise program?

In brief: Important

An overall exercise program ideally has an aerobic component and an anerobic/resistance component.

In brief: Exercise

Running and bike riding are great cv exercises and are great resistance for the legs.
Unfortunately they are associated with reduced lean mass in the upper body. A whole body resistance program will help maintain upper body strength and lean mass.
