What we're about


TRIC has traditionally started our regular patrolled skating season at some point during the first week of May. This year we are delaying the start to the TRIC season due to COVID-19, the related Stay-At-Home Order and Social Distancing Guidance. We do not currently have a start date. Until further notice, there will be no TRIC organized group in-person activities.

Come skate the streets and paved trails of “The Most Livable City in America” Pittsburgh, PA.

Three Rivers Inline Skate Club (TRIC) offers five (5) weekly organized, recreational, adult group street and trail inline (rollerblade) skates. Organized skates run from May thru September. Skate routes vary in the city, Downtown, Shadyside, Oakland, S. Side, Sq. Hill, N. Side, Mexican War Streets, Strip District, Station Square, Bloomfield, Highland Park, Lawrenceville, and many more. Parks, bridges, stadiums, tunnels, hills, paved river trails, etc...
