Help me pick a cardio activity and stick to it!

I want to get super fit, but I don't want to bulk up at all. What's a good, effective cardio activity that wouldn't give me thick, muscular legs (because I am trying to get smaller, toned legs).
So, what cardio would you recommend?

My current BMI is slightly below 20 and I am in good health. Eat super healthy and everything, and have a good weight training routine going on. But I want to make sure my cardio is as effective as can be.
Here's some more information:
- I'm an avid cyclist in everyday life. In road situation, though, because of all the high resistance to get the bike started and because my town is hilly, my calves are super huge and manly-looking. I'd love to do some spinning, but I don't want my whole leg to bulk up...they are already not small!
- I can walk or hike like nobody's business. I'm known to randomly go on a 5-mile walk. BUT for some reason every time I try running my feet hurts. If there's any info on how to start running, I'd like to try that...although, again, no big legs!
