Over the autumn, 2017 grew apart from 2016

Up to this autumn, 2016 and 2017 seemed to be very similar, like a pair. Just over 10,000 km ridden both in 2016 and 2017. Commuting a lot. Recreational riding a bit here and a bit there, abroad.

Leisurely riding up to this October. Then, 2017 grew to become something different from 2016. Taiwan KOM Challenge made a change. It was the other of the two big cycling events of my life so far.

After Taiwan, I found virtual indoor cycling. I've done it more in six weeks than all trainer-riding and spinning together in the last ten years. Usually I wind down and even hibernate the midwinter months, but not now.

I'll be ready to ride the hilly Andalucia roads in February. Then add only some harder pre-season training, and there'll be fitness level sufficient for competitive sportives next summer.

What do you think about these Strava vintage videos? I prefer 2016 version.
