Looking for some suggestions as I'm becoming ever more despondent with cycling and my shot left knee.
In brief, I've cycled for most of my life (43 now) mtb and road. Got to a reasonable standard too.... even won a couple of things in 06/07!
But I've had persistent knee trouble. Seen ALL of the bike fit experts and had 2 operations to remove cartilage and ligament structures. After a year of rehab. I can only manage very short rides before I'm in pain. Knee is then worse for days.
It is extending the knee, rather than weight bearing, that is the problem.
So before I tumble back into the black pit, what else could I try?
Always been active, so need something that exercises the CV system.
Swimming is a possibility, but I find it dead boring (like to chat to people too!). Kayaking maybe?
