BIKE HASH this Sunday 28# March 2021– EARLY START !!
Beep Beep has unilaterally declared an early start to his Bike Hash this coming Sunday. Bikers are requested/ordered to have an early night after Saturday’s Bush Hash and turn up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed on Sunday. For those who ride the bike to the start point: we start at the JOMA NP (near the Fountain) ONE HOUR EARLIER than usual, i.e. at 8:15 am ! Bike-ride-start from the circle ( 22,4 km from Joma, on the Road 11, about 2 km after the Wat Kokma on the left) at 9:00 am !
The hot dry season appears to have arrived early and the trail could be a little dusty. But a sufficient number of beer-stops have of course been arranged ( we hope so) by our Belgium (half frog) So, don’t miss it and keep with your survival-training-bag 😊

“Bicycles, bicycles, I want to ride my bicycle. That seems to be a common theme these days”, thought Graeme “Mother Trucker” Bolger, a keen VH3 Monday and Bush Hasher. And so he formed the VH3 Monthly Bicycle Hash.
The inaugural Bike Hash Run o. 1 was held on 30 May 2010 at Dongmakkhai, about 20 km north-east of Vientiane, with Mother Trucker as Hare. Since then the Bike Hash has been held on the last Sunday of every month, with a total of 80 rides completed by the end of 2016.
The number of participants on each ride now averages around 10 to 20, with a mixture of foreign residents, Lao nationals, members of other Hashes and visitors from all over the world.
The basic format of the VH3 Bike Hash is similar to that of the VH3 Bush Hash, with runs of 20 – 30 km in out-of-town areas, marked with lime, chalk and/or shredded paper. Generally, one or two stops are made at a roadside shop or food stall for water (beer may also be on the menu).
