Good news Dan. I had a Baker’s Cyst years ago after arthroscopic surgery. The surgeon actually said that cycling will help the body absorb it. Months later it was gone. Enjoy your pain free cycling.

Any info on knee pain to the top of the knee cap. I get pain to the proximal portion of my knee cap.

Good ole patella femoral syndrome. Best to see an Ortho or trainer because it can be due to so many things. Basically, old knee wearing out. Mistracking of the knee cap wears the cartridge down and those nerve receptors start firing up. Mostly caused by over use and undue stress on the knee. RICE can help, but when it goes chronic, it takes more than home management. Losing weight, spin more versus agressively pushing the pedals. Pedals with more float; plenty of exercises online to strengthen quad muscles around the knee. Also, can be caused by imbalance between the hams and the quads. Basically, slow down and let the knee become pain free; then slowly add back activity to see what is flaring the pain.

Ditto Bentcyclist.  The other day I added a long (10 miles) steady climb (1,600 ft) to my training menu.  I did it mostly to `test' the naughty knee, i.e., to see if there would be evidence of knee pain.  (Fortunately, no problem).  I stayed in the 50t up front and a 30t - 36t combination in back.  I promised myself that if the knee became problematic I'd simply turn around and roll back down the hill.
 
However, even with the best of `knees' this would have been a challenge.  The next day I did feel the quads more than usual.  Best to spin easily and rest after such a heavy `push.'

Thank you Bentcyclist, weight  is not really an issue, age maybe I'm 55 yo. I don't understand pedals with more float. I realized after aggressively pushing, is when it acts up. I use some lemon oil on it and the sharp pain subsides. I'll keep my aggressiveness down and spin more. Still getting used to the gearing on my new ride.
