I have this sinking feeling that I'll be stuck here for life, never able to do a truly long distance ride because I have a knee that always complains. I hope not.
That fact that you recovered in a week from that would indicate to me that doing the same ride again, with adequate preparation, should be no problem at all for the knee.
