I wonder if a longer pull starter cord routed through eyelets on the frame might work? You would need to be careful that the cord is routed so that it cannot tangle on the pedals, etc. Some petrol engines have a pull cord or electric start option. If salvage parts for the electric start could be found for your engine that might work, although it would be heavy. Is there a bike coop, or even a local bike shop near where you live? Some people might be able to help you get set up with an e-bike, trike, or perhaps a ride share arrangement. You seem like a very independent and capable person, but there are times when you just need a friend to lend a hand.
