Hello from Sweden (Europe)
I've just joined the forum, and am impressed with the amount of information found here!
I'm an enthousiastic recumbant bike rider. I have 2 recumbants, one ten year old and the other is brand new. I will try to add a picture later.
I usually bike around 200 km a week; twice in the weekends and every day to work. I really enjoy(ed) it, but now I am having a problem with my right knee. I've been diagnosed with patellar tendonitis by a doctor after making an MRI scan (although he said patellar tendonitis is not a good description, it's not an infection, it's an overuse problem, small tearing in the tendon) and he said it was nothing serious. But this is already 8 months ago. Everytime I start cycling again, it comes back. Running is OK. I've found that stretching really helps, but for a fairly short time. If anybody has advice for me, please let me know!
