I'm a long-time distance runner but last month I partially tore my left achilles tendon. The doc says it may require surgery. I can't run but would like to use my trail bike. Is it possible to pedal with a torn achilles? I have a lace-up ankle support if that would help.

TIA,

Well it all depends on what the doc says I guess. And whether or not it hurts while riding? I wouldn't chance making things worse without some reassurance from the guy looking after the issue.

That being said getting on the bike will probably help you retain some decent base fitness while you recover.
