Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Medial tibia sore?

About 2-3 inches below the jointline in my knee I get some soreness. Nothing terrible, but noticeable when I press on it. It is almost like the medial side of the calf where it connects to the bone.....What is this? Like I said, it's not bad, I just know it is there. I have 7500 miles this year.

I'm not a M.D. but it could be sprain/inflammation of your medial collateral ligament ,go and see an orthopedic/sports M.D.,you might need an M.R.I.

What would cause this in setup? I always have it on both sides for years. I have been professionally fit as well.

I hate these types of posts, so I'll try and do it as politely as possible. Both of your tibia are medial. The fibula is lateral. I just want you to know so you don't embarrass yourself in front of the doc. I would also concur with the previous poster. Sounds like your a ligament. I would get to a doc as well.

I have always had this soreness. It does not inhibit anything or cause pain.
