Stationary bike: I am not sure what you mean by sensitive knees. However, if you tend to develope knee pain with activities i would stick with low impact activities like stationary or recumbent bike or an eliptical machine. Only work out on an every other day basis to allow your knees a chance to recover.

Could you tell me why my knees click when exercising?

Patellofemoral: Clicking/popping can often arise from patellofemoral (behind the knee cap) degeneration, which basically refers to wear and tear of the cartilage behind the knee cap. If the clicking is not associated with pain (which is typically the case) then i wouldn't worry about it. If you do have significant pain then see a physician.
