There are several things you can do. Run, Jog, walk, go run your mountain bike course, etc but the best thing to do is ride on the road. No jarring or anything like that. You gotta do something or you will get smoked when we ride next time lol.

Being casted, sweat is gonna be a pain. But if it is a wettable/washable or removeable cast I'd say spinning. If not, I'd be leaning towards focusing on core strength and flexability exercises vs aerobic/sweaty workouts. But being in a cast and only for 6 weeks you're probably young, cut and flexible, so don't worry about it all LOL.

+1 for spin classes.

Does riding MTB tires on the road really wear the tread that much?
