View Full Version : First Metric and knee pain

09-11-2006, 06:00 AM

I completed my first metric century on Saturday afternoon . For about the final 20 miles, I had increasing knee pain. The knee pain was much more detrimental to my ride than the normal last-push fatiguing of the quads. It definitely felt like a joint strain and not so much a muscular pain. What to do? I'd like to do 75 mi before the season is out, but I don't want to damage the joints. Does this mean my seat is too low? I've done 50mi with no knee pain -- this is the first time it's happened.

thanks for your thoughts!!

Hi Renee,

There are many causes of cycling-related knee pain - a lot depends on where the pain is located. I've found this site to have loads of good information:


Good luck pinpointing the cause of your pain and getting rid of it!
