Tant pis pour ceux qui sont partis en vacances en Europe fin Juin. "Reverse screw" a eu raison de le preciser dimanche a la fin du cercle : ce sont les 2 plus beaux "rides" que l'on ait fait dernierement. Tout le monde etait d'accord visiblement : tout etait absolument parfait !Qui s'est plaint des misdirections ? Pour une fois que je prends ma voiture, on est arrive a bon port aprรจs 2h30 sans probleme.Qui s'est plaint d'avoir des grenouilles dans sa chambre ? " Suan Nong Nooch Resort" est juste magnifique, tres bien entretenu, le personnel adorable, les chambres tres agreables, avec vue imprenable au bord de l'etang…Qui s'est plaint que le parcours etait dur ?Le samedi, c'etait journee "Tapioca". 45kms. Des champs a perte de vue. Des montees, des descentes….et surtout des montees ! dont une en pparticulier interminable, ou je croise une famille thai pique-niquant a l'abri d'un arbre et qui OSE me demander : " Nuaw mai ? " !!! Oui ! Je suis "nuaw mak mak" ! Ha ha Meme Christophe fait moins le malin . Durant les premiers kilometres, il nous double plusieurs fois comme une fusee et fait le fou en traversant les rivieres. Bien sur aprรจs la moitie du parcours, il a ralenti la cadence. Il aura au moins merite son nouveau H name : "ACID QUEEN" Felicitations Christophe. Qu'est ce qu'il ne ferait pas quand meme pour se faire remarquer celui-la ! Les descentes etaient un peu perilleuses, beaucoup de pierres. Qui n'est pas tombe ???Le dimanche, , c'etait journee "Palmiers et foret". 30kms. Evidemment , comme d'habitude,il a plu tout la soiree de la veille. Ca va etre certainement encore plus boueux que le samedi. Les Hares nous disent en partant : " Y a pas de montees " . Mon oeil, pas de montees . Ils nous ont menti ! Je hais les montees. Je vais arreter de fumer, c'est promis ! Mais la balade est extraordinaire : single track dans le bush, comme j'adore. Et moi aussi Vincent, j'ai fait quelques kilometres derriere …Mr ???… avec une jolie vue sur ses es fesses a travers son cycliste si use qu'il en est transparent ! Visiblement ce n'est pas la premiere fois qu'il sevit. Dommage, il aura encore eu droit a un petit defile de mode au milieu du cercle et une biere comme punition pour Atteinte a la pudeur.En tout cas, mon nouveau velo a ete absolument formidable. Pas une seule crevaison !. Merci encore venere GM pour tes conseils indispensables et judicieux qui ont permis de faire le bon choix !Et encore merci a Annie et Patricia pour ces 2 superbes rides ! La barre est haute pour le prochain !NathaliePS : Merci aussi a Neil, qui a fait un travail de traduction remarquable, car j'ai fait la "lazy frog" … mon texte original etait en Franncais J  Bike Hash - June 2007 English VersionThe absent ones are always pastry. Such an amount of worse for those who go on holiday to Europe at the end of June. "Reverse screw" was a precise raison while on Sunday has the end of the circle: they are the 2 more beautiful "wrinkles" than one made bottom. Everyone was of agreement obviously: all รฉclairs absolutely perfect! Who complained about the misdirections? For once that I travel by my vulture, one east arrives has good port after 2h30 without problem. Who complained to have Frenchmen in his room?"Suan Nong Nooch Resort" was just splendid, is very well maintained, the adorable personnel, the very pleasant rooms, with unspoilable view at the edge of the etang... Who complained that the course was hard? Saturdays, it was a day. Tapioca, 45kms of the fields has made me blind. Mounties, descend... and especially of the Mounties! Including one in particular interminable Mountie, I cross a Thai family spade screwing. I have the shelter of a tree and who DARES to ask me: "Nuaw May? "!!! Yes! I am "nuaw mak mak"! Ha ha Same Christophe makes less the malignant one. During the first kilometres, it doubles us several times like a frisbee and makes the insane one while crossing the rivers. Well after the Mountie of course, it slowed down my rate. It will have at least merit his new Hash name: "ACID QUEEN"! Congratulations Christophe. What it would not make when same to point out itself that one, hah! The descent entry is a little perilleuses, much of the stones. Who isn't to fall???Sunday, it was a day (again). "Palm trees and drill". 30kms. Obviously, as usual, it rained all the evening of the day before (yesterday). It will be certainly even muddier than saturdays. Hares say to us while leaving: "You does not have a Mountie". My eye, not of Mounties. They lied us! I hate the Mounties. I arrive and will smoke, it is promised! But trotts it is extraordinary: individual track in the bush, as I adore also Vincent. I made to some kilometres behind... Mr.???... with a pretty sight on his buttocks has through his shorts if uses that it is transparent! Obviously it is not the premiere time say it. Damage it, it will have still right small defile mode in the middle.Of the circle, and a beer like punishment for attending. In any case, my new bicycle is absolutely formidable. Not only one puncture!. Thank you still ancient GM for your essential and judicious councils which allowed me to make the good choice! And still thank you to Annie and Patricia for these 2 superb wrinkles! The bar is high for the next one!NathaliePS: Thank you also Neil has, which did a remarkable work of translation, because I made the "lazy frog"... my original text was in French. Also I love him more than life itself and want to have his babies.  Write up for Bike Hash 270 and 271 @ Suan Nong Nooch Resort in Kabinburi.In German as requested JDas Suan Nong Nooch Resort liegt in beschaulicher Lage in Kabinburi ca. 2 Stunden nordlich von Bangkok. Die anreise war sehr gut beschrieben unnur etwas bessere Auskunft bei der Meilenstien benenneung hatte not getan!Die 270 te Hash war benannt als eine der der Herausfordernsten Hashes seit langer zeit und somit waren alle sehr gespannt was uns ewarten wuerde. Die Streckenfuehrung war wie zu erwarten sehr huegelig, mit steilen anstiegen, schlammigem Untergrund sowie auch sehr trickreichen abfahrten ohne sie wirklich downhill nennen zu wollen.Die Gruppe blieb vorerst gut zusammen was sich aber aufgrund der Streckenfuehrung bis zum ersten Wasserstop schnell gegeben hatte.Nachdem sich die Konfusion ueber die weitere Streckenfuerung nach dem Wasserstop gelegt hatte, ging es weiter mit einer hervorragenden Streckenfuehrung, die mit Herausforderungen an die Beinmuskulatur nicht sparte.Kaum zwei Flussquerungen, einem gebrochenen Sattel sowie unmengen von Platten spaeter, ging es in den Circle um den Teilnehmern denen gutes oder schlechten wiederfahren ist mit einem Bier, einem Hash-Lied und auch dem einen oder anderen neuen Hash-Namen zu begluecken.Der Abend klang aus bei guten gespraechen und einem Buffet mit lokalem character.Der zweite Tag sollte nun weniger aufregend werden, was sich aber sehr schnell as ein Trugschluss herausstellte denn die 271te Hash war heugelig und erwartete die 51 Teilnehmer mit einigen trickreichen Verwirrung wie enge uebergaenge und miss directions. So war als erstes kleines Hinderniss ein Engpass zu meistern der alles Teilnehmern zunaecht Raetsel aufgab und die checker einige Zeit beschaeftigte. Im Verlauf der Strecke kamen Downhill-Freunde voll auf Ihre Kosten, denn neben kurzen, gut zu meisternden anstiegen warteten enge, gut zu fahrende und vor allem schnelle Downhill Passagen auf die Teilnehmer.Die pituresken passagen der 271ten Hash waren gepraegt von Reisfeldern und wunderschoenen Fernblicken in das atemberaubende und vielfaeltige Gruen Thailands.Durch 2 platte Reifen nacheinander waehrend der letzten 2,5 kilometer der insgesamt 24 kilometer kamen wir leider erst an als der Circle schon in vollem Gange war was die freude auf die naechste Hash in Kao Yai allerdings in keinster weise schmaelern kann“On On” for 272 and 273 Christian  Write UP for Bike Hash 270 and 271 @ Suan Nong Nooch Resort in Kabinburi.English TranslationThe Suan Nong Nooch Resort lies in contemplative situation in Kabinburi approx.. 2 hours nordlich of Bangkok. The journey was very well described under something more favourable information with the molesting boomerang emergency. The 270 width unit Hash was designated as one that the out-Ford-serious Hashers, since long time and thus were very strained all which of us gaspants became. The routing was as to expect very hilly, with steep rows, muddy underground as well as very sophisticated departures without it downhill to really call woolly.The group blubbed for the time being well together, which however due to the routing up to the first water stop had fast given oneself. After the confusion had put over the further Streckenfuerung after the water stop, it continued to go with a outstanding routing, which did not save with challenges to the leg musculature. Hardly two river traversings, a broken saddle as well as enormous amounts of plates later, we were into the Circle around the participants. Those good or bad again drivers are with a beer to also glug, a Hash song and or other new Hash lies.The evening sounded out with good discussions and a Buffet with local character. The second day should become less exciting now, which however very fast as a fallacy turned out the 271st Hash was howling and expected to measure the 51 participants with some sophisticated confusion like close transitions directions. Like that a bottleneck was to master all participants. zunaecht mystery gave up and the checker some time busy as the first small prevent-eats. In the process of the distance Downhill friends came fully at your expense, because beside short, well to mastering waited confines, and above all fast Downhill passages which can be driven well rose to the participants. The pitstop passages of the 271st Hash were coined/shaped green from rice fields and beautiful remote views in the breath-robbing things and Thailand. By 2 plate tire successively during the last 2.5 kilometers that altogether 24 kilometers we did not arrive. Unfortunately only as the Circle in full course already, were which the joy on the next Hash in Kao Yai however into more kindly wise to diminish cans."on on" for 272 and 273 ChristianPS. What a guy Weedeater is, he is truly amazing!
