After two long back to back rides last week I had to walk the final few miles due to severe pain on the inside of my right knee - its kind of around the inner side of my knee cap, and where my quad joins my knee. I rested it over night, tried to ride the following day but it was a complete non starter. The pain is only there when I pedal (walking running etc is fine) and is from mountain bike riding. I was using SPD's, tried flats after day 2 but i think the damage was done.
I suspect I have picked up an overuse type injury of the medial cruciate ligament and am currently resting it. I am no expert, but wonder if the cause is down to a fit or cleat issue. Can anyone recommend someone to go to who would be able to assess my fit and see if there is a problem. I have noticed that when i pedal, my right knee tends to move outwards (away from top tube) at the top of the stroke and suspect this has caused it.
