I used to have some minor knee pain after long rides, but fortunately they completely disappeared after I got a proper bike fit.
Currently I ride 160 miles / week and recently I started to climb during the weekends. I noticed that since I go on more challenging trips (70 miles + 5-6000ft climb) my knees feel a little bit more sensitive after the ride. I wouldn't say that I have pain, I'd call it post ride discomfort / weakness / sensitivity. Not a big deal, but it's noticeable.
I started biking 7 month ago and I weight 140 lbs.
So here are my questions:
* Will my knees get used to the increased demands?
* Is there any pre/post ride exercise that helps?
* Should I take some sort of joint health supplement to speed up the recovery?
