    What's clicking, your knees or ankle/Achilles area?

    Go see your GP, these sorts of things can be subtle signs of injury. My wife had, IIRC, a very quiet squeak which was a sign she had nearly torn a tendon in half, it wasn't painful it just squeaked.

    Off-topic but I know someone who spit his false teeth out after hitting a joint in the road surface at speed going down a hill and spent half an hour trying to find them in the grass verge.

    I had a lot of clicking or a snapping sensation from my Achilles while I was getting used to higher mileage. There was a regular snapping sensation particularly as I walked downstairs, the best way I can describe it is if you pull an elastic band tight across the corner of a table and then pull it off the corner. It was like the tendons were a bit inflamed and were catching on something, no idea if that is what it was but that is how it felt.

    There was never any associated pain and after about 6-12 months it completely disappeared and has never come back. I just put it down to not having done much exercise in the past and then getting quite heavily in to cycling so I think it was a bit of a conditioning thing.

    Get it seen to. I injured my ankles a lot when I was a teen and I sound like I'm smuggling maracas when I walk.
