Yes, walking and hiking. These are both good alternatives to cycling, except for transportation, where cycling is far superior. A nice compliment too, because it is load-bearing on more joints and helps keep your bone density where it should be.

I used to see a guy in the forest preserve every weekend morning. He would bring a backpack with fixins to make fresh coffee: a little burner, perculator, etc. He would get to his favorite place, a foot bridge with a wide wooden railing, get his stuff out, make coffee and just stand there enjoying the view while enjoying his coffee.

I do a variation on that sometimes now: I bought a small, collapsible twig stove, a camp pot, big woodsy chopping knife, lighter, etc and a tupperware with left-over, scratch-made chicken noodle soup. My daughter loves it, so I bring the setup to the park and start the fire in those public grills that no one uses.

It's a good time to take up whittling as a hobby too. There's a guy, Chris Lubkeman, who wrote a couple books on whittling with just a Swiss army knife and green wood. (get the wood from invasive trees like Buckthorn)

Had the same thing after a crash last year. Kept riding with a elbow support for a while. Really hurt more when sleeping on it. Took 6 to 9 months to really feel better.
