Day 2 Lands End Ride

We awoke to sunny weather and set off at around 10 am after a full English. 
Our route was through Hungerford then SW to Burbage on a quite pleasant but undulating A road through the N Wilts downs.
There were some nice villages with thatched cottages, including a two storey one in Rushall raised on stones, that I later found was out built of straw
We bought some sandwiches and ate them 
on a bench, then stopped off at a pub for a 
There seems to be a pattern developing here! 
Although today I only had orange juice. 

We cycled on along the northern slopes of the 
Salisbury Plain to Frome on a quite hilly B road.
 It warmed up quite a bit too.
We saw 3 white horses on hills, the best of which
was at Westbury.
Arrived at hotel at around 4:30. Slightly fewer 
miles than yesterday but more hills. We feel 
like we've earned our dinner today.
Day's mileage 53. Average speed 10 mph
