NEW FOREST CYCLING WEEKEND
20 - 22 MARCH 2015
Nearly forty Hardy’s and Wessex Hashers took over the Burley Youth Hostel in the New Forest for a weekend of partying, cycling, Hashing and drinking - all very enjoyable and very well organise by ABO and many others - A great weekend.
First priority - get the food and other unnecessary items out of the hostel fridge and the booze in.
Bianca and Cod Piece from Wessex Hash.
They are joined by Hardy’s Hashers C.O.T.K and Organgrinder
Circus Boy and LMF
Wessex Hashers have no stamina!
“Does Kay know what you have been downloading?”
“I certainly hope not. Luckily she never looks at my iPad!”
Tsunami gives her nose a big blow and is amazed to see what came out. She thought she had lost that ear ring for ever.
“Bookend - what if we sing very loudly until Merry Men comes out at 4.30 am and tells us to belt up?”
“Yep! I’m up for it!”
“DES! Get more drinks in for this table!”
“Sorry my dearest sweetie snookums. Can’t hear you”
Bumblebee plugs himself into his intravenous alcohol dispensing device.
For a joke Sonic attaches a horse’s head to his willy and then cannot get it off.
After he and H5N1 go upstairs to a bedroom he comes down looking much relieved with the horse’s head removed. But what’s that tiny carrot looking thing in his hand? Oh No! It can’t be his willy can it?
Bumblebee does some extraordinary things when Psychedelic is not around.
He has obviously been missing her a great deal whilst she has been in Florida.
The late night three-legged race around the hostel grounds was a rough affair - especially when going through the bicycle shed. Circus Boy and Cod Piece were off to a fast start having got a good rhythm going.
BOF called for a steward’s enquiry after his partner Merry Hen was rammed hard from behind by ERCO. However she said it was an interesting experience and really didn’t want to make a fuss.
ABO and partner head off at high speed into the woods and were not seen again for over an hour.
Can you see anything binding their legs together? CHEATS!
BOF and Merry Hen come running in - last!
The booze fridge was almost empty. Guess who had been raiding it the most!
Hands up who wants another drink.

Anyone know what was going on here?
ABO is getting mellow.
Jim Jams arrived for the cycle ride with a puncture in her back wheel.
The fancy dress theme was ‘Jockeys’.
Although Circus Boy didn’t appear to be wearing any ‘Jockey’ fancy dress we suspected he was wearing a Jock Strap from the way he was walking - so that counted.
A few Down! Downs!
ABO gives his briefing.
One last vital check on her Facebook status and we were away
ABO’s rear tyre had a slow puncture which needed frequent blowing up whilst Gravelrash had a full puncture. Luckily she was carrying a spare inner tube. Unluckily she was not carrying a pump.
Saturday evening at the pub for a meal
A naming ceremony - “Surf But No Turf” - because Jason ordered Gammon at the evening meal and got Salmon due to a misunderstanding.
Organgrinder and BOF were punished for going off into the woods during the cycle ride to have a pee together. There was much banter about ‘Golden Showers’ and other things which went over their heads - like the drinks. Organgrinder finished her drink long before BOF but she always likes to finish before him.
The Sunday morning ‘Hangover Hash’ was through amazing woods with old trees, New Forest ponies and interesting houses.
Lost in the forest.
ABO asked the New Forest pony if it knew where the trail went. “Neigh!” was the reply.
A tree carved into an owl. Very clever!
A charming cottage.
A mock Tudor chimney
“Just give me your hand my darling. You can trust me not to drop you in the mud!”
“Yeah - Right! I’ll just jump and hope for the best”
