Sore Knees?!

Hopefully someone can help. I normally go out twice a week for around 25mile stints on the mountain bike and recently I have developed bruises on the inside of my left knee. Walking around work my knee is sore and today I am wearing a support.

I haven't fallen off the bike in ages, so what could be causing the pain/bruising?

Thanks,
A

    The inside of your knee is a rarity, do you run clipless pedals?

    I have SPDs and have been using them for quite a while.
    Is there anything you can do to strengthen your knees in the event that I am pushing too hard?

    It's unlikely that that's the cause. I'd see a doctor/physio get their opinion. The bruising suggests ligament damage but evidently there's not, simply because you'd know all about it.
