As I get further into my rides I get a cramping/ twitching above the knee, but not quite in the quads. Painful, I have to slow down until it passes. Any ideas? remedies?

You're suffering from dehydration, my man. Possibly a little potassium or calcium defficiency as well, but mainly water. Drink more. Well before you're thirsty. I had to develop this habit by setting a countdown timer to 5 minutes, and every time it went off (continuous cycle), I drank. Meant I had to carry more water with me, but the lack of cramping late in the ride more than made up for any time lost to carrying more weight.
