I have a recovering drop foot (was 0/5 now closer to 2/5), is it safe to bike?

Yes! : It can actually help the drop foot but must be sure that you can do it safely.

Not on the road: Loss of power and control would make it unsafe to be on the road amongst traffic. However, stationary bike would be fine.
