...AND WE'RE OFF!
…AND WE’RE OFF
The Heavy Metal Truants have departed on the epic, perilous, strength-sapping 168-mile ride towards the north, Donington and Download Festival. You can keep track of our progress on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
So far the Truants have raised £232,000 for some very worth causes – Nordoff Robbins, Teenage Cancer Trust, and Childline — and this year we’re hoping to smash the ride target of £66,000. We’re already over halfway there, but there are still plenty of riders who need help with their individual totals, and it’s never too late to start contributing.
That’s right, the opportunity to ride with the soon-to-be-legendary Heavy Metal Truants is now open – it’s a hell of a ride but you’ll have an experience you won’t forget, and you’ll be raising money for the kids who need it most in the process. If you have the mettle, and you’re metal enough.
