Heavy Metal Truants

Team photo

Hello, and welcome to the team page for Heavy Metal Truants, the world's first heavy metal charity bicycle ride to Donington!

Late last year, Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood invited me on one of his now infamous charity cycle rides, this one through the foothills of the Atlas Mountains in some truly blistering heat. It was hard, but it was also genuinely one of the best, most fulfilling experiences of my life.

Little did I know, but Rod also had a proposition for me. 'So then, how are you getting up to Donington next year?' he asked. That was the birth of the Heavy Metal Truants, and the rest was history.

We are artists, agents, managers, labels, industry, and fans united by a love of heavy metal and a desire to raise money for kids who need in most, in the name of Nordoff Robbins, Childline, and Teenage Cancer Trust.

Please give generously!
