My brother (age 59) had two knee replacements this winter. He's riding 25 to 30 miles 4 to 5 times a week. He does report, however, that is average speed is still a bit lower and hard climbs tend to cause some problems. So, he's approaching them cautiously (he gets off and walks if he feels any pain in either knee). Finally, he has said that there was a point at which he thought he would never be able to put in reasonable miles, but after about 8 weeks of regular riding that passed and his body started adjusting.
