Big news – Savage Messiah front man David Silver is taking part in this years Heavy Metal Truant Bike ride in aid of the Nordoff Robbins Charity!
The bike ride idea started in 2012, where manager of IRON MAIDEN, RON SMALLWOOD, and Metal Hammer Editor-in-Chief ALEXANDER MILAS started the idea of influential people in the metal music community getting on their bikes and riding to Download Festival (instead of taking the limo or the helicopter), getting people to sponsor them then giving all the money to charityl Last year the event last year raised almost 100,000GBP for Nordoff Robbins, Teenage Cancer Trust and Childline.
This year, our very own Dave Silver is taking this challenge to ride to Donnington in 3 days, covering 161 miles and very much looking forward to a festival at the end of it!
Riders have to raise a minimum of 1,300GBP to take part in the event, and we are asking for you to pledge on Daves page here:http://www.justgiving.com/
