Exercise : Use your watch to exercise. Let's say you start with 5 minutes the first day, increasing it by 5 minutes every other day. Don't increase if the pain persists. Potentially, your pain will decrease as your muscles strengthen. You may also want to try taking an anti-inflammatory 2 hours before riding. In a week, if no improvement, see an orthopedic doctor.

C an ortho. : A good orthopedic exam & imaging may help. Even if u have a great fit, an internal derangement will still give u trouble.

Not necessarily: Do you recall any specific trauma to your knee, or did this just come on spontaneously? Does it hurt all the time or just with certain activities? Have you tried ice, heat, and/or anti-inflammatories? If you have not, you can try that first. If it's a constant pain, then you should consider seeing an orthopaedic surgeon for a physical exam and x-rays.

Arthritis/arthralgia: It depends on your medical history. Your age, medical issues. Occupation, family history, medications etc. In addition a physical exam would be necessary to evaluate for potential infectious etiologies eg. Gout or psudogout. It could be as simple as degenerative arthritis or some thing more serious such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus or ather rheumatological disorders.
