Hi. Welcome to Bike Forums. You've come to the right place for tips on riding. One piece of advice I can give you to keep stress off the knees is to make sure you learn how gearing works. Until you develop strength and endurance, make sure you use your lower gears (easier to pedal) when climbing hills, or any time you start to feel stress on your knees. Check out the Clydesdales forum for more info when first starting out. Great tips for people over 200 lbs. It's come in handy many times for myself.
