The road to Download: The Heavy Metal Truants ride again

Heavy Metal Truants – the most metal cycling club on the planet – raised more money for charity when they cycled from London to Donington

Last month, the world’s most rock’n’roll cycling crew, Heavy Metal Truants, hit the road for their latest epic trek, completing their gruelling 164-mile cycle route from London to Download festival, battling heat, hills, and the very occasional hangover. The group featured a host of bands, fans and industry types including Akercocke’s Jason Mendonca, Savage Messiah’s Dave Silver, Orange Goblin’s Ben Ward, Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood and our own editor-in-chief Alexander Milas.
