The more you ride it is inevitable, just like tennis elbow for example. As stated above putting more weight on your knees while riding is a bad idea. Causing your knees to strain a lot more. To take some steps to reduce this? Well, let your body have a chance to recover before going out and hitting the trails hard again. Take Vitamins and build strength in your joints by lite work-outs, and make sure to get in a good stretch before every ride.
Cycling is one the best exercises for your knees . If you use proper technique& saddle height I wouldn't worry to much about it. Your weight will also help with strain on your knees also.. Stretching is good before a ride but make sure you are warmed up before you stretch never do a cold stretch
