As many of you are aware John Phillips is on a one man mission to cycle to Monte Carlo & back a distance of some 1700 miles in aid of the Help for Heroes charity.  John is now into his 2nd week of cycling, and Maria informs us last night that the weather is not being too kind to John at the moment but he has made it as far as Gap, in Provence and has stayed at a different campsite every night.  Lets hope the weather improves for the rest of the trip!!
