Cyclists Callum O'Brien and Jean Pierre De Villiers had begun this journey together, riding for Macmillan Cancer Support and the Addie Brady Foundation. However, JP's journey came to an abrupt end when he was hit, head on by a hit and run driver. JP remains in intensive care, sustaining two broken legs, a broken arm and injuries to his abdominal area. JP from his bedside in Plymouth Hospital encouraged Callum to finish what they had started.. Callum did just that…👊
