Hoping for some advice. I am 59 and have been having knee pain since April 2011, 2 weeks ago I had an Arthroscopy on both knees, it was a hell of a shock to be told I have arthritis in both knees. As a keen cyclist I am use to cycling 6 to 8000 miles a year, at present I am finding it very hard to get around and am off, the bike also off work as a engineer, have an app with GP on Fri. Am retireing this July and hoped to be able to lead a active life. Is it possible to carry out long distance cycling with arthritis, any help would be most welcome.

    Hello Barry and welcome to the forum.

    So sorry about your arthritis diagnosis and no wonder it was a shock for you.

    I think that if you re-post your message on the Living with Arthritis (LWA) forum you will get more replies because most of us look there regularly. We are a friendly bunch, so you will be made very welcome.
