In photos: The Devil's Punchbowl

I'm completely out of practice riding off paved roads at the minute so I ventured out to the Devil's Punchbowl near Hindhead UK. The byway started easy, further up I encountered 2–3 foot deep ruts from run-off when it rains, then a few steep hills with sharp rocks on soft sand... Nothing for a seasoned rider I'm sure, but I've not been off the tarmac for nearly a decade and it was an eye-opener just how out of practice I am...
