Bashing Again, at Long Last

Since our friend Arthur Gash died last October, we haven’t been to a hash or bash (if you don’t count Gash’s memorial, that is). But we were back out today on a trail. Not just any trail but a trail with its own name: “Can You Ride the Waves?”

We could, and did, but Pick [...]

Been a While, Crocodile

Yes, indeed … I haven’t posted here since Arthur Gash died in early November. I wrote and delivered a eulogy at Gash’s hash memorial and send-off, and one of the hashers there kindly took the photo on the left, mid-way though a proper roasting of our departed friend and hasher.

Since then I haven’t had [...]

Pedalfiles Bash Trash: RIP Arthur Gash

On Saturday, November 4th, the Pedalfiles Bicycle Hash House Harriers lost our Grandmaster, Arthur Gash.

Gash was a long-time Tucson hasher. I can’t remember exactly when he started running with the jHavelina H3, but it was a long time ago. Pick’n’Flick and I were there for his virgin hash, and later his naming. We barely [...]

Pedalfiles Bash Trash: 10/15/17

Last Sunday the Pedalfiles Bicycle Hash House Harriers celebrated its 11th on-oniversary. Tucson’s bike hash was founded in October 2006 by two local hashers, Bimbo by Day and Casual Friday (that’s them on the left), both of whom have since moved away. Both were in Phoenix for InterAmericas Hash the weekend before, and we [...]

Pedalfiles Bash Trash: 7/16/17

It’s July, so it must be time for the Third Annual Loose Nut hareless bash. Yes, we still follow the same map he handed out in 2015:

Loose Nut’s map

The pack was small but convivial, actually a good turnout for what promised to be a hot morning in Tucson. Here we are on [...]

Random Updates from Hashland

There have been so many “suspicious white powder” confrontations between hashers and the Man I’ve pretty much quit tracking them, but this one stands out.

Click image for story

Why? Because it happened in Singapore, a city/state smaller even than Hong Kong, and like Hong Kong home to several active hashes (including the second-oldest [...]

Pedalfiles Bash Trash: 3/19/17

On a beautiful and warm Sunday morning the pack—which included a large contingent of Monthly Cycle bashers from Sierra Vista—assembled at Serial Grillers on River Road for a bash trail laid by Spin Cycle and Just James.

Group grope at the start

Trail looped west and north from the start and after a little [...]

Love the Bash, Hate the Name

Just putting this out there: I hate the name of Tucson’s bicycle hash kennel, the Pedalfiles. One, it’s misspelled (although that may be intentional). Two, it repels outsiders (if there’s one thing no one jokes about, it’s sex with children). Three, it has an impact on membership, discouraging recruits who haven’t been exposed to hash [...]
