My knees hurt

So my legs feel like they're in great shape from all the biking... Except for my knees and the muslces and tendons around them. I never notice it much while I'm biking but other non-cycling motions, left to right leg movements, etc., sometimes make them hurt and generally feel like they're not built up enough.
Are there any excercises you guys would recommend to work on those muscles or should I try re-adjusting my bike?

are you getting alot of side to side motion through the pedal stroke? forefoot varus?
i added some shims to my cleats. my generic, all the time, sort of knee throbs seem to have gone away since i did that.

i also run and hike. its nice to get out of the 2d motions of the bike. cross training and stretching will probably help - but i'm no doc!
