Different people are affected differently- I have to miss a lot of sleep before it bothers me, and then I just feel like I need to sleep. I can race just fine on a small amount of sleep.
But sleep is important for rebuilding muscles.
As for the OP, if what you've got is a cruiser bike, go ride it. No need to "train" yet, just go and have fun. Go cruise around the neighborhood, down the road, wherever. If you're going farther from home than you would like to walk, consider carrying a spare tube, pump and tire irons (and a wrench to undo the axle nuts).
