Bev, holding her famous drizzle cake

Day Two and a safe arrival at the Leonora Home in Chippenham, Wiltshire, after pedalling every inch of the 85 miles from Taunton!  They were welcomed by happy residents; cups of tea (what else!) and lemon drizzle cake made by Bev.

On the way they cycled through the village that claims to be the home of Jack and Jill, which Stephen said was bad news for cyclists as the hill is very steep!!

Stephen reports that the ride from Taunton was uneventful,  though there’s no explanation as to why Philip is stretched out on this little dirt lane.  Apart from the fact that he’s holding a bottle of water.

Philip stretched out on lane

Tomorrow they have 100 miles to cycle, first to Framland in Wantage and then to Shottermill House in Haslemere.  And the weather forecast says ‘RAIN!’

Again, do pray for safe cycling through the rain and for God-speed.

Safe at Leonora
