Heavy Metal Truants…And We’re OFF
High fives and good lucks to the Heavy Metal Truants team, who set out earlier this morning on the Download Charity Bike Ride 2013!
The gang are riding 161 miles from London’s Alexandra Palace all the way to Donington Park for Download 2013, pulling into the festival around lunchtime on June 14, just in time to see the likes of Slipknot, Bullet For My Valentine and Korn.
All proceeds from the ride will go to three charities: Nordoff Robbins, Teenage Cancer Trust and Childline.
“Metal fans are concerned about stuff like this – we’re an active crowd,” notes Rod. “Metal fans get off their asses and do things. It’s communal, a fraternity, and I hope this opportunity will be appealing to them.”
Heavy Metal Truants have received a groundswell of support from the industry, bands, and fans alike, and sponsored riders have signed up from Parlophone, Sony Music , Universal/EMI, BMG Rights, 5B Artist Management, Raw Power, Phantom, The Agency and a host of other industry heavyweights.
For a £250 entry fee that will cover the cost of hiring a bike plus hotels and food for all three days, you can join in the fun, getting to ride alongside awesome bands and industry heavyweights, all while raising a nice bit of money for charity. DONATE NOW AT https://www.justgiving.com/HMTruant
