Just to reiterate, X's allied to a pair of R087 shimano road shoes helped my worn knee a huge amount. Other things to check, your current cleats for alignment, spring tension and fore/aft position. If the alignment is out the natural resting position of your foot may be pushing unecessarily against the springs' centralising action thus putting torque thro' your knees.
Finally fore/aft position of your saddle can lead to sore knees, google should find you something more informative on this.....

Woger makes a valid point, its Impotant you do not assume its correct to set up your cleats in a straight forward aft axis , most folks will can't out a few degrees which will mean if you cleats are holding you in a straight position you will keep your knee in tension and develop a dull ache which gets worse. suggest you ride a few miles on flat pedals and see where your natural angle is then set your cleats to suit,

Not sure if this is much help, but the KeO 'grey' cleats I use have 4.5 degrees of float, which I've set in such a way that they will not allow my heels to strike the chainstays when pedalling, and there's more than enough movement to be comfortable, I do not feel at all restricted. There are also 'red' cleats with 9 degrees of float, which seems a bit excessive, and 'black' 0 which is just horrible.

Quick heads up for tomorrow.I have rung the Pub at Stinchcombe same as we used last time and cakes and bacon sarnies are on standby.
The land lady wanted numbers but I couldn't do that so can some one remind me in the morning to Text her with ruff numbers. Ta.

Just for you I ordered Veggie sausage sarnie so I had to eat it as there were some funny looks when I asked if anyone wanted to swap for a bacon.It was supposed to be a Linda McCartney but I think it was Heather Mills leg!
Seriously though I do hope you are looking after yourself and return to the fold asap If no one else misses you I DO BIG TIME!!
Take care Steve.
