How much to spend on a used Bike? (Chicago)

I've moved to an area of Chicago near LSD (lake shore drive), and I wanted to start biking there as well as around the city to save money on gas and also to get some cardio as well. I'm a novice when it comes to these things and don't want to spend 300+ and so I'm looking for advice to get a bike on the cheap. I figure I'll be using it for recreation/exercise, not to commute to work or anything so I don't need the latest and greatest, but something reliable and cheap if possible, not sure where to start. I may just go into one of the bike stores and ask around, etc to get a good idea of what to possibly purchase. Now I just have to hope that the drivers here in Chicago honor the bike lane and get a helmet!
