And that's exactly what I'd tell your coach, because he knows it's the truth. When he denies it, ask him to give you a copy of the research that proves riding is harder on your knees than running, and then walk away.
I can ride all day long with little knee or ankle pain.
But if I so much as pick up a jog to go for a run, instant left knee pain. (Big thanks to genetics for a family of bad knees.)
I will not be convinced riding is harder on your knees than running,.. because it's not.
