    do you work out at the gym? it sounds like the muscles in that part are weaker than the rest of your knee and so when your setting off they cant take the strain of the set off. if you are at the gym they have a machine that does work those muscles. start off on low weights and over a few weeks get stronger and stronger.

    Sounds like your abductor muscles need some stretching after riding and some warm up beafore riding.
  • I don't know if you use cleats, but I believe if they are incorrectly positioned, that can give you pains in your knees. I suppose this could also be true of your foot position even if you weren't clipped in.

    According to the book 'Maximum Performance for Cyclists'.... "Inner knee pain can be corrected by decreasing external rotation (heel in)"

    I'm not sure this is relevant for you , but maybe foot position might be worth thinking about?
  • i suggest you do some squads about 35 reps a day to get some power in your knee, it also depents what activity you have done before !
