Went on a 140km ride today and about a quarter into it, my left knee became really painful. I think I tweaked it on the trainer in the winter and aggravated it commuting. I took the rest of the ride really easy, popped an advil, made it home okay. I now have the ice bag on it.
Question 1: Any tips for dealing with knee pain when you're in the middle of a ride?
Question 2: Any tips for helping the tendinitis heal? I'll use ice treatment and stay off the bike for a week or two, see if that helps.
