Iron Maiden frontman's charity ride

He has already run to the hills, but now Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson is preparing to pedal to the festival.

The singer will cycle 25 miles to the legendary heavy metal band's gig at the Download Festival at Castle Donington next month.

He will join a group of charity cyclists called the Heavy Metal Truants on the final leg of a 165 mile journey to the festival from Alexandra Palace in north London.

The star, who is also a qualified pilot, said: "Yes, maybe it's the first time the headliner has shown up on a bike, but I do use my bike to get around in London when l get the chance and have turned up at the BBC on a bike before, although the Commissioners were a bit surprised as they are too used to seeing limos.

"These are great causes, I am only sorry that due to our tour schedule l can't do more of the ride, and hope our fans will support our efforts.

"I look forward to a day off after the ride seeing some great bands before we go into full Maiden action on the Saturday, with every intention of giving the fans a memorable show. Download and Metal fans are the best there are, so everyone expects something very special."

The ride will raise money for charities including Teenage Cancer Trust and Childline.
