I got the season off to a great start with a sportiff ride in South Africa so when I got home I started building up a really good fitness level. Then went out looking for steep hills, built up some good muscle on the thighs but mashed my knees and gave myself bursitis, which coincided with the purchase of some nice wheels courtesy of AlanW on this forum. So now I've been off the bike for two weeks and it's killing me; I go into the garage every evening and fondle the bike, promise it that it won't be long before we are out again but I know that overdoing it now could wreck the entire summer. How long will it take for these damned knees to sort themselves out? Anybody else had this problem? It's fluid squeezing out from the joints and causing soft lumps behind the knees. Been to the Dr and he says just rest and see how it goes but that was two weeks ago.
