I can cope with most things on my bike, but one regular occurrence on the chalky hills of the South Downs Way freaks me out.

Steep downhill chalky gullies that look fine at the top, which when tackled invariably have nasty lumps of flint hindering safe descent.

I just got through this sector without incident, but I have been known to go into orbit.

What’s odd here is that I’ve just done  a big loop, but the footpath to the right hits the highest point and misses the hideous loose stones which wreak such havoc.

You get an idea of scale from the adult runner in the bottom of the valley.

He’s aiming for Winchester.

Hope he made it without incident.
