2022-04-03 - So You Want to be a Hike Leader?

Hike Leader: Frank Potter Class: A 6

Description: The VIC Hiking Club runs on Volunteer hike leaders. Those individuals you see are current or former members of the international community that have taken the time to locate, plan, organize, lead and conclude an event in a safe and responsible manner.

Sounds like work, yes. Sounds like fun, DEFINITELY! Whether you have lived in Vienna for most of your life or just arrived, leading a trip is a great way to discover more about our (temporary) home. If you need more reasons, it also is a way to demonstrate those leadership and ‘take-initiative’ skills expected of public-servants.

GREAT, where to Start? Attend Frank’s “So You Want to be a Hike Leader?” session. In it, you will learn such things as:
1. Where to Go – safely
2. How to lead a group
3. What happens when things go wrong
4. A brief overview of the tools available to the club and in general

*Eligibility: * You must be a member to participate and be willing to lead at least one “A”-category event in the remainder of 2022. The event may be a hike, cultural walk, cycling trip, etc. that meets the general criteria of the club.

Cost: Free other than transport to the hike destination.

Route, Map, etc.: to be announced based on interest.

Who is Frank?: Frank has been leading trips since his teens through Scouting and via organizations as diverse as the Alberta Wilderness Association, Edmonton Bicycle and Touring Club, Waskahegan Trail Association, and the Stewards of Alberta’s Protected Areas.

He does not speak German so tends to run events close to Vienna out of safety considerations. This will be a semi-structured programme that will help you lead your first event with confidence, safety and most importantly funly (is that word?).

- Safety, Comfort and Other Considerations
— Note that washrooms seem to be typically porta-potties on the trip; an outbound ‘attend to matters’ is highly recommended.
— The trail involves moderate ascents and descents; good footwear and suitable physical fitness is required.
— The last ~200M requires walking along the secondary highway L167. It does not have a shoulder and is busy so extreme care is required.
— Poles are highly desirable for the initial descent from Hexenberg and then because portions of the trail down to the table-land is very rocky and strewn with boulders.
— Keep an eye out for gliders from the local airfield.

- Return from Bad Deutsch-Altenburg
— Trains run on the hour at xx04h
— Optional lunch based on group consensus

Along with fortifying their “inner beauty”, hikers will also have the opportunity to enjoy the homemade desserts at the Steinerhof, the first “legal property” recorded in 1637 in the Pfalzberg area of the Wienerwald. Josef Steiner started a Gasthaus that six generations of his family have maintained as a place to feed hungry travelers (and day-trippers from Vienna).

Light ‘ferrata’ gloves and a helmet are a good idea.

This is a suistained-pace hike, to catch the 3 pm bus connection from Losenheim. Although there is the possibility of simple refreshments at the Edelweisshütte (arrival around 2 pm), it is highly recommended to bring water and snacks for a quick lunch on the go.

To get to Heiligenstadt: at Spittelau station follow the signs for Heiligenstädter Strasse, then take the D or E4 tram (same route direction Nussdorf) to Heiligenstadt 12 Februar Platz. The station is behind the arches of the housing block. This takes about 15 minutes. Similarly, the S45 isn’t running to Heiligenstadt from the direction of Hütteldorf either.

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 ***
