Who are we? We are the Three Rivers Inline Club (TRIC). We are a nonprofit club that has been skating and promoting inline skating in Pittsburgh since 1994.

See our Wikipedia page.

TRIC is one of the most active inline skating clubs in the nation with organized skates five days a week. We have a skate for everyone, from first-timers who want to learn, to all-out athletes who want to skate 20 miles. In the winter some of us ski or snowboard see TRICSkiing. Check out our weekly schedule below. There is no charge to skate with us everyone is welcome.

The season will start on Wednesday May 3rd! Get together to see old friends or come out and learn to skate. We have a new start time for Wednesdays - 6 p.m. for lessons & 6:30 p.m. for the Shadyside - Oakland skates.

Until we have more advanced skaters, the Monday night Advanced Skate is on hold.

DISCLAIMER: Even if you do not join the club, please be advised that TRIC strongly recommends that all participants in TRIC sponsored events (including its weekly city skates) should carry medical and liability insurance and should wear protective gear (i.e., helmet, wrist guards, kneepads, elbow pads, and, at night, reflective clothing and blinking lights). Please also be advised that there are particular inherent risks of injury involved in city inline skating, including, but not limited to: cars, bicycles, other skaters, pedestrians, potholes, manhole covers, chains, trolley tracks, cobblestones, bad pavement, water, oil, debris, gravel, curbs, stairs, hills and inclines. This list of possible risks is not comprehensive, because conditions on the street, including the weather, are constantly changing. TRIC cannot accept any liability for the existence of any such risks. Ultimately, each skater is responsible for staying alert to potential risks and obeying all traffic regulations. Finally, TRIC strongly recommends that all participants in TRIC sponsored events (including the city skates) possess and master a set of minimum skate skills before participating in its events: the ability to skate in control, especially on hills; to stop in traffic; to maneuver curbs; and to avoid obstacles.
