Download Festival Sweats It Out To Back Heavy Metal Truants

In London on Wednesday 26th April Download Festival stamped their style on the latest fitness trend by hosting a spin class to the very best in heavy metal music. Taking place at 1Rebel Studios the event saw the festival and fans pedal to the metal to get behind the Heavy Metal Truants’ training schedule, ahead of their annual charity ride from London to Donington Park.

The metal spin class saw a host of Truants, festival fans and the Download Dog unite to cycle, head bang and sweat it out to tracks by bands from this year’s festival. Now in its fifth year, the Heavy Metal Truants sees the rock and metal community raise money for Nordoff Robbins, Teenage Cancer Trust, and Childline, by embarking on three days of cycling, covering 164 miles from Alexandra Palace and arriving at the hallowed grounds of Donington Park on Friday June 9th.
