Trainer is my sugestion, like a stationary bike but on your bike... can ride with minimal shifting required and is a VERY good workout (if you do not get board is 5 minutes like I do).

I took a class at a fitness conference once and they were advising us to get people who had injuries like yours into the water and have them do water plyometrics and endurance training. Besides swimming, I'm talking about pure plyometrics drills and exercises in the water. It will definitely help your legs, and it's absolutely no impact. It also should help you maintain your cardiovascular too.
