April 22 - Wheeleasy Wride

Hike Leader: New Hikeleader Class: Bicycle Super easy/easy/beginner

Whether you have been riding year round or are still trying to find your bike in the Keller, this ride is for you! We will meet in centre of a Stephansplatz and meander from there. Note that this will be 3 rides in one:
1. 10km – very easy ride in the innerstadt with a few stops to discuss biking in Austria for newbies and bikes in general.
2. +10km – easy ride further afield in which the speed and pace will increase but still in the beginner realm. This ride will stop at/near an U-Bahn in case you want to stop but not ride home.
3. +10km – beginner ride a little faster and further again with a return to the innerstadt.
If you are an experienced rider, consider coming along because I like to pair newbies with old-pros. If you are an old-pro thinking of coming out, take a read of my 2014 blog which I use as the basis for my beginner rides: http://myorgbio.org/riding-bikes/.
As for the route, I have a good intention in my minds eye but it is doubtful that our actual route will bear any resemblance to this initial plan. Nevertheless, if you can pick up this INCREDIBLE resource from your local bike shop. https://www.wien.gv.at/english/transportation-urbanplanning/cycling/cycling-map.html.
As a recap, here are the details:
Where to meet: Stephenplatz – Dead Centre looking at the church at 0900h. We will be the ones in spandex and holding onto bikes.
Cost: zip, nada, zilch, nuttin’ (for members, non-member rates apply).
Registration please register and let me know whether you will be doing the 10/20/30km rides.
Please make sure you have a well-maintained bike. If you are not sure your bike is well maintained, it probably is not, take it to a bikeshop. Citybike’s can be used on the 1st 10km section – but be prepared to get a good work out!

  • Note helmets are mandatory ***

Number of participants: one or two. Contact me at least a month before you would like to take the course.

Plenty of photo opportunities!

Description: We will follow the footpath “Alta Via delle Dolomiti No 1” which runs through the eastern Dolomites in Italy from the Agordo valley near Belluno northbound to the Nature Park Fanes-Senes-Braies. It passes through some of the finest sceneries in the Dolomites (Lagazuoi, Civetta, Pelmo, Tamer, Moiazza, Schiara), particularly the less known Belluno Dolomites area. We will choose the no-climbing variant, bypassing the climbing paths “via ferrata” (on the massifs of Schiara and Pelmo) and remaining in non-exposed standard hiking terrain experienced on previous Club treks in the Dolomites such as in July 2009 (Brixen-Sillian, led by Frits) and August 2011 (Passo Costalunga-Passo Sella, led by Tomas). A typical day on the route might involve about 5-7 hours ups-and-downs walking, with ascents and descents of about 1000 metres. The highest point on the route is Monte Lagazuoi at 2,750 metres. This route passes a number of relics of the fighting that took place here during World War I (for example, the tunnel Galleria Lagazuoi). The proposed sequence of stages is commonly recommended in guidebooks and internet hiking blogs, but the stages can be modified upon weather and availability of huts. Huts for lunch are available at all days. Emergency early descent to public bus service on the pass roads (Passo Duran, Passo Staulanza, Passo Giau, Passo Falzarego, Passo Valparola) and/or in side valleys is possible at all days.
Needs good condition and good backpack :-)

14 - 15 June 2014: Weekend hike to Salzburg (Untersberg)

Hike Leader: Carolyn Lettner Class: D 7

Description: Leaving directly from the city of Salzburg (460m) a stunning walk along a river of mountain run-off awaits us. The ascent is steep and supported with wooden ladders and stairs to aid against erosion, but there are few drop-offs and cliffs.

After passing though the Rosittenbach we reach our overnight hut (Toni Lenz Huette, 1450m). If we arrive before 16:00 there is the option of a 45minute guided tour of a natural ice cave (15min walk from the hut). Well worth the 5EUR entrance fee.

Day 2 takes us up on the plateau, through tunnels blasted through the rockface (caution, wooden stairs and exposed faces). We cross the plateau and enjoy a pleasant hike down along the parallel valley.

Dinner is planned in Fuerstenbrunn or Glanegg before catching the bus back into Salzburg.

Ladders, steep rock stairs, areas secured with metal cables, and loose rock can be found along this hike

Due to the time required to cover the distance the pace will be relatively quick. The first day is almost continously uphill, covering 1000m in about 5 hours

Pictures from last year’s hike: https://www.flickr.com/photos/vichc/14297395903/in/set-72157644868469154/

plus food

Registration:
By June 6th noon

Note:
I have purchased 3 sparschiene tickets at the reduced rate of 43€ for first come first serve. The earlier you register the cheaper the transporation will be. If you register later and require assistance in buying a train ticket I am more than happy to assit, however I cannot guarentee that the reduced rate will still be available. If you have other Oebb reduced fare opportunities (Vorteilskarte, etc.) you may be able to also find a reasonably priced ticket that is not a sparschiene.

Gear: Good shoes, rain jacket, head lamp, ‘Huetten schlafsac’ for the hut overnight, warm hat/gloves/socks, bug spray, sunscreen, snacks.

More information to follow.
