Knee pain

Question: Knee pain

I have a nagging behind the kneecap / side of knee pain combo. I cycle regularly 4 X week up to 3 hours each.
I took a rest because of a knee pain. Last week I hiked 4 days in a row up to 4-6 hours each, up steep hill down steep hills. No pain at all (except muscles) when i get back on bike I can feel pain (mild) behind knee cap in first few minutes. I can still ride 2-3 hours at a good clip and it seems to be less noticeable an hour in (well warmed up) when I get off bike nothing behind knee at all ?? This is left knee.
Below knee on outside 1 " down there is a tender spot (upon applying finger pressure) best guess is a tendon between calf muscle and fibula

Try massaging the affected area with warm olive oil, mustard oil or coconut oil. Gently massage the area about two to three times per day.

Get your bike setup checked, if your pain is exclusively with riding a bike then surely that tells you something.
