The Inchape Toyota team kicked off the start of a gruelling 3,381 mile bike ride to new york , at 10.30 a.m this morning with the help of John McGovern former Derby County and Notts Forest Legend .
John McGovern took too his bike in the centre of the photo above with the help of Paul Raby from Inchape Toyota Derby on the left and Harriet`s grandad Paul Gregory on the right, in order to cover some good ground and get the first miles clocked on the bikes .
Throughout the first day of the Help Harriet cycle event, Inchcape Toyota staff, members of the public and customers coming into the showroom clocked up a staggering 362 miles and managed to raise a whopping £3456.
We would like to say a big thank you to John McGovern for coming to Derby to open the event and all those that have made the first day a great success.
There will be many more footballers, rugby players and celebreties alike visiting Derby Inchcape Totota over the next few days and weeks, we will keep you all informed as to when they will be appearing at the showroom in order for you to come down and have your picture taken whist pedaling on the bikes to help raise funds for Harriet .
If anyone would like to take part in the Help Harriet Cycle event, then please pop along to the Toyota showroom at Pride Park Derby and help us to Help Harriet .
