Went out on a 47 mile road ride yesterday, and even though I know it’s hardly mega-miles it is the longest ride I’ve done for over a year. Woke up this morning and my knees are both really sore – like never before.
I’ve been riding the Meta consistently off road but nothing like that mileage and use Shimano 540 with plenty of float. On the road bike I use Look pedals with the red Delta cleats – much less float. Is it something to do with this, or am I just getting old (42)? 😉 More importantly, is there anything I can do about it? Cheers
Knee pain covers a lot of ground. I’m starting treatment for pain on the outside of my left knee which has a preliminary diagnosis of ITBS or Chondromalacia patellae. So far I’m at the stage of hefty painkillers and waiting for physiotherapy. I suspect it’s quite important to get some expert advice to avoid making things worse.
