Dear Heavy Metal Truants old and new.

As you may have already seen, Download Festival have taken the very difficult decision to cancel their 2020 event due to the current pandemic, a decision which we fully support.

This will mean that the eighth ride of the Heavy Metal Truants will be postponed until the road ahead is a little clearer. We remain steadfastly committed to supporting our chosen charities who will need the help now more than ever in these uncertain times. As ever, we will find a way.

Any riders who have already paid their full registration amount can either request a refund, or we will count it towards our next ride. Your £100 non-refundable deposits remain so, but will also be counted toward future registrations – please let us know.

This is a difficult time for many, and while we are genuinely gutted we take great consolation in the knowledge that the Heavy Metal Truants will ride again – guaran-fucking-teed.

Stay safe, stay metal, and watch this space.

-Alex, on behalf of Rod and all of the HMT Committee
