Forty bikes and cyclists on the Condor Ferry.

A re-enactment of the ‘Great Brussels Escalator Accident’

P8090088LoRes

When Organgrinder fell on her back on the escalator she nearly had all her clothing ripped off her body by the mechanism. No wonder the men were holding back from making a quick rescue.

First stop - tea and home-made cake by the beach. Surely this is not a Hashing trip?

It is the law in Guernsey that novice riders have to display ‘Learner’ plates. And, Swatchstika believed every word that Bumblebee said!

P8090098LoRes

“Trust me! It’s non-alcoholic!” Yeah Right...

P8090099LoRes

“Is she going to believe Bumblebee or not?”

P8090101LoRes

“Do you want a finger in your ear?!”

Jim Jams sticks to blackcurrant non-alcoholic drinks for the whole trip...

P8090103LoRes

...unlike some others!

Lunch was served right by the beautiful and extensive beach at Cobo Bay. So what better excuse for a swim?

P8090109LoRes

Bumblebee and Bookend make a ‘lucky dip’ into a bag of swimming costumes for three lucky Hashers to wear.

Circus Boy wonders whether being with Hardy’s Hashers is sensible - and concludes that being sensible is not a sensible way of going through life.

Does beer strained through underpants improve the taste?

P8090135LoRes

From the menu of a local restaurant. Nobby is a Hasher of taste and distinction.

P8090136LoRes

On learning that the ferry was delayed by one hour we engaged in some pelvic floor exercises in the car-park.

P8090138LoRes

On arrival in Weymouth thirty minutes after midnight we all agreed that I had been a long and very enjoyable trip. To those that like statistics the cycle ride was either 21 miles or 23 miles depending on which route was taken.
