General cycling advice ( NOT technical ! )

I suffer from Spinal Stenosis, Psoriatic Arthritis and DDD and have had spinal surgery and haven't been able to ride for some time. I also have three other bikes just sat there but selling seems like giving up.
I know someone who had a very bad accident years ago. He will never ride again.
Bumped into him and had a decent chat with him earlier this year, our first chat for a few years. He told me he purchased a really nice Italian racing bike recently (2nd hand, he couldn't resist he said) and he will just look at it occasionally. This gives him pleasure in itself.
I had tears in my eyes then and again now.
