Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
It's awesome to be part of the 2016 Heavy Metal Truants team. Not only are we cycling to raise money for some great Children's Charities, we are also undertaking an epic road pilgrimage to Donington for the Download Festival! That's pretty metal!
I will be joining the Metal Hammer crew and other media, music and industry partners as the Aussie contingent. I look forward to complaining about how cold it is considering it is summer, or maybe I'll enjoy the fact that it is summer and Im not melting into the road as it won't be 45 degrees!
This is the 4th time the Heavy Metal Truants have undertaken this task and it's grown each year into a bit of a big deal among the metal community. Proud to be a part of it!
If you're able to support, in any way, please do! I'll love you for it!

Hello, and welcome to the Heavy Metal Truants Justgiving Page.
So far we’ve raised £174,000 pounds for kids – let’s triple it!
It’s about more than just cycling. It’s about the brother and sisterhood of metal cycling to raise money for some very worthy causes – in this case, Nordoff Robbins, Teenage Cancer Trust, and Childline – to raise money for kids who need help. We’re doing that by putting our pedals to the metal with the great and good of the music industry – agents, managers, promoters, publicists, record labels, media organisations, and artists alike for a gruelling 161-mile bicycle ride leaving early from Alexandra Palace in North London on June 8th and arriving at Download Festival around midday on June 10th, just in time to see some bands.
It won’t be easy, but then nothing worthwhile ever is. There will be hills, heat, and hangovers, and it’ll take weeks of preparation to face the task ahead, but we are convinced that if there’s any community out there who’ll answer the call, it’s people like you.
Spread the word, and join us on Facebook and Twitter or make a donation. Just remember that it’s all in the name of Charity for the kids who need it the most.
