Knee pain after riding

Does anyone else get sore or stiff knees after a day of hard, knee dragging riding?

I did after 2 days of tearing up Deal's Gap. Switchbacks make you put a lot of strain on joints/ligaments in your knees that usually don't have that much body weight on them (LCL's). Take some Motrin

Yeah mine did.

Take Motrin, switch between ice and heat if it's really bothering you. Not much else you can do for sore joints. It'll go away unless you tore something.

I don't think I tore anything as it's not that bad. I'm taking Aleve. Its jsut that its never happended before and it is a little concerning. I guess I'm getting older

Yes I have, but it is what it is. It's not a scooter, you know

I didn't do it...

Don't post a thread in the future about bug guts getting all over your fancy paint work, nobody cares.

You might find some success with doing regular stretching. Hanging off the bike and riding next to it through corners puts a lot of force on your knees that they don't normally encounter.

I'm 40 and after a long day of riding the RR, rather than pointing out what hurts, its probably a lot quicker to pick the few body parts that don't.

Lots of Motrin and Tylenol in my cabinet.

I know what you mean Homer. I'm going to be 37 this July and it aint what it once was. But it's so damn fun I just can't stop. I had knee surgery on my other knee last June and thought I'd never ride like I am used to again and I'm pleased to say that I'm riding better than ever before. The knee I had surgery on is doing better after rides than my other one.

I actually get exactly the opposite. I have injured my right knee multiple times including a dislocation, and it starts to hurt a lot if I'm being lazy and not leaning off the bike.
