Pedalfiles Bash Trash: 3/16/14

A small group of dedicated bashers met at the corner of Harrison and Broadway on Tucson’s east side this morning: Wankers Aweigh, Hot Legs, Spot Remover, Flying Booger, Pick’n’Flick, and Zorro. Flying Booger, the designated hare, left shortly after, laying trail north toward Speedway. You can get some idea of what was ahead for the [...]


Pedalfiles Bash Trash: 12/22/13

Pedalfiles H3 needs a GM! Today, Dec 22, was Redheaded Woodpecker’s last bash before moving to East Bumfuck Indiana. Let us know if you’re interested in being our titular leader. We could use some tits. G knows Woodpecker came up short in the that department.

Flying Booger will continue to schedule and announce bashes when [...]


Pedalfiles Bash Trash: 11/17/13

I do not get it. It’s the absolute best time of year to be outdoors, whether hashing or bashing or just walking the dogs, and only three of us showed up for the bash this morning. What the hell, people?

Since Deep Dish, me, and our hare Redheaded Woodpecker were the only ones to show [...]

Hare’s diary, Sunday, July 21st:

Pedalfiles Bash Trash: 6/23/13

The announcement for this bicycle hash was bungled by yours truly, who told everyone to show up at Deep Dish’s house at 10 AM instead of 9 AM, when it would have been at least a little cooler. So not only did Deep Dish and Redheaded Woodpecker have to wait an extra hour before haring, [...]


Pedalfiles Bash Trash: 1/20/13

January, one week after a vicious cold snap, blue skies and temperatures in the low 70s … what a perfect day for a bash!

Spot Remover & Missed a Spot invited us to meet them this morning at the corner of Tanque Verde and Sabino Canyon. They promised a 12-15 mile trail with hills and [...]


Pedalfiles Bash Trash: 12/16/12

It rained all weekend and right up to an hour before the start of this month’s bash, but a bash is a bash so we loaded the bikes and drove to the start at Fruchthendler School on Cloud Road. We arrived to find the hares, Illegal Entry and Redheaded Woodpecker, in the middle of an [...]

Today’s trail was set by Yoda. Yoda trails should only be attempted by advanced hashers, those who, as we say, get the concept. Do you get the concept? Take this short quiz and find out!

You encounter this symbol on trail. You should: 

a. Turn right b. Turn left c. Continue straight ahead [...]
