You can try flying a RC helicopter, rebuilding a transmission on your kitchen table, rewiring your house for 220V, and fishing for bass.

Or take up knitting.

It's night. Go for a ride without lights. That will get you out of your doldrums.

There's also a good documentary on the Middle Ages. Just the thing to make you count your blessings.

It's gonna get demolished soon anyway when they build the new mega-bridge so that more cul-de-sac neighborhoods can spring up with more people driving their 7-seat vehicles into the city all by themselves and cause the same amount of congestion that already exists but on a larger scale. At least I'll have an alternate bike crossing, which is cool.

Read a good book; if you don't like reading, listen to a good book. The latter can be done while bike riding, walking/running, or driving. I've listened to hundreds of audio books while riding and never been bored.
