Is there any specific stretching?

Whenever I do my cycling I do it in bursts of speed while keeping my Cannondale on the toughest gear. My knees have started giving trouble now every time I put too much pressure on them. Is there any specific stretching I’m not doing because of which this problem has arisen?

Grinding high gears will damage your knees, sit and spin, it is also kinder on your grear train

Don't push silly big gears - if you are sticking your bike in 53 at the front and 11 at the back and then pushing these round hard at 60rpm for your speed then rethink your strategy. Look at the way the pro's accelerate, their cadence speeds up on a slightly bigger gear.

If you are still getting knee pain then go to your GP.

Golden rule: Don't push through knee pain, ever. Trust me on this one
