The Great Ride Series - Beginner
You’re invited to join our beginner level Saturday morning group ride, starting and ending at Performance Bicycle. The ride is for beginners, those getting back in the saddle, or riders who want to add some variety to their cycling. The ride will last approximately one hour, and will go at an average pace of between 12 and 15 miles per hour. We’ll explore some of the local bike paths and some residential routes, as well. The ride will take place every Saturday morning at 9:00am and is a “No Rider Left Behind” ride. Come out and join us for this fun, non-competitive ride. We can’t wait to see you there.

North Park
Description: Excellent Singletrack close to the heart of Downtown Pittsburgh! These trails are rated as some of the best in the entire area, and it's very easy to get a good 20 mile ride in. Theres plenty of fun xc style singletrack, as well as some fireroads, but the majority of the trails in the park are singletrack. The trails are not continuous and any comprehensive loop will be separated by very small sections of road. The many branching and spurs can also make these trails difficult to follow but the recent blazing (marking) of trails has done a lot to help. Difficulty: All levels
Location: Pittsburgh
