how to train with a broken bike

I am waiting on a new fork to come, as mine blew up last week. I was wondering what types of exercises would be good to get in shape for the season ahead, not having a bike.

I assume spinning would help a bit, but it sucks so bad

any other suggestions?

Core exercises and cardio are always good.

Pushups, crunches, chinups, sprint intervals, preferably up a hill, running the stairs at the football stadium, rowing, etc.
