There is no possible way to answer that question. You diagnosis is permanant, and although exercise may relieve nerve compression, it can come back. If the nerves are compressed they tend to cause muscle atrophy. You can take a chance by riding a bike, but run the risk of again developing pain and lifetime discomfort that will not be relieved by treatment. It is not simply the weight of the bicycle, but the up-and-down bumps that will be transmitted to the lumbar vertebrae.
