I'm a little confused. You were seeing a doctor to see how to develop your training plan. You're getting a professional bike fit. You overdid a ride over one weekend, and the pain in the knee is gone? I take it you did the RICE? Then.... unless you're a newbie who's out of shape and don't normally ever ride, I don't see why you can't repeat that ride sooner than later. 6 months seems like a way long time to build up to that kind of riding, provided you're in shape.

Always remember- RICE really does work. I assume your training will include knee strengthening exercises, including joint stabilization exercises? And you'll be working on building your mileage? What's your starting point on what you can do now?
