As previously announced, the Heavy Metal Truants team have been on the road again this week, following last year’s success. The cyclists have completed their 161-mile charity bike ride, after leaving London’s Alexandra Palace on Wednesday morning, and reaching Donington for Download Festival 2014, this Friday afternoon.
Some very well known people in the metal world have taken part in the ride, which raises money for the Teenage Cancer Trust, Nordoff Robbins and Childline. Check out their comments below:
HELL‘s Kev Bower stated: “We made it. 259km/161 miles, and seemingly uphill much of the way. Arrived at Download around 1245 today, after one of the best things I ever did in my life. And as for helping raise £50k so far – the word rewarding doesn’t even come close. A big thanks to the band’s fans for their massive contribution!“
Andy Sneap commented: “161 miles completed, over £50k raised so far, numb hands and an arse like a Japanese flag, but an amazing experience.“
Metal Hammer and TeamRock Chief Alexander Milas expressed: “Boom! 161 miles baby. It’s been emotional. Two and a half days on the road with the best of people for the noblest of causes. And now, all of the beer.”
