Maybe put slicks on the mountain bike and ride roads around where you live, unless you live near trails the hassle of loading up car will make it more difficult to get out the door for trail riding.
Maybe you can use bike for errands, commuting. Thats what I did after 10yrs of no real riding. I put more miles each week commuting/errands (90mi) that on my weekend long rides. (60mi)
As to travel, I do quite often as well, most of the hotels I stay at happen to have a gym and most have cycle exercise machines - maybe make that a point to look for that when booking hotels. If not maybe just take your walking (edit - I saw you have knee problems, can you walk 2-3mi) shoes - at least you get some exercise if not cycling.
