I love using clip-in pedals (where your shoe is attached to your bike pedal similar to how a ski boot is attached to a ski) because of 2 things:
When you are just starting to use clip-in pedals, practicing while on a stationary bike will give you the confidence that you can do it on the road.
Typically it takes a "flick" of the heel (and maybe a little twist at the knee joint) to release your shoe from the pedals.
But I found another way that uses much less heel flick and knee twist - watch the video to see how.
First, release the shoe of your "good knee" side and swing that leg to the opposite side of the bike and stand while your other "sore knee" foot is still attached to the pedal. Then using your hip and body, rotate your whole leg so that it releases your shoe with no twist through the knee. Voila! Your foot is free.
