Absolutely - I wish that was all that is wrong with my knee (chondromalacia being one of them) - bicycling is basically "no load" exercise on a bad knee.
I crushed my knee in 1989, and 6 surgeries later, it's as good as it's gonna get, with about 100 degrees ROM. Considerable stiffness, and chronic pain.
Next step is complete replacement.
Bicycling is one of the few things I can still do well, at 64. I ride about 38 miles per day.
