High kicks: With your leg locked as straight as possible, kick forward as high as you can. Some people try to touch their opposite hand. Try 15 kicks on each leg as one set. You might have to work up to it. They're not easy. The idea is to improve how your knee cap tracks by improving muscle balance in the thigh, which is something that frequently goes wrong with cyclists, possibly due to incorrect position, fit, or pedaling action.
