I keep the same cadence on all my rides.
I agree with this. I can't see any reason the change your cadence according the the length of the ride. I also have some knee problems, and I find it really helps to keep the cadence high. I've never bothered to calculate exactly what my cadence is, but I try to spin pretty fast most of the time,

So the answer is... high cadence AND long distance!
