I'm new to this forum as well and looking for some new places to ride. I live in WV about 30 minutes from Pittsburgh. I can meet up and ride any Sunday, that's my only day off. Usually ride Settlers Park and recently did Frick.]]>

Hello, I just recently got back into riding. Years ago, I rode Settlers Park a good bit, but haven't really been anywhere else. Hoping to find some ride groups to jump into and explore some new riding areas. My work schedule is brutal, so Sundays are my only available ride days. Hope to get involved with some up-coming rides.]]>

Thanks Justin. I get what you're saying. I got up early this morning (temps were 20-25 F) and checked out the beginning of the red/blue blaze, and bailed almost immediately as I could tell that things weren't frozen up at all. I also noticed plenty of the 4" deep ruts you're referring to.]]>

Thanks for the feedback guys.. I ended up bringing my road bike and got some hilly rides in.

Up here in Syracuse, we still have 2' of snow on the ground so we won't be riding the trails until June at this rate! I was hoping Pittsburgh may of thawed and dried a bit earlier, but no luck! I'll have to wait until June when I'm back in town.]]>

In general March is not a good month for riding in the Pittsburgh area. It really takes a few weeks after the snow melts for the trails to dry up enough to be ridden. We need consistently warm and sunny days to dry things out, which don't always occur simultaneously. The few hours of sub-freezing temps aren't usually enough to re-freeze the trails either.

I was out at Frick yesterday morning(not riding) and while it wasn't too sloppy, the ground is very soft and many areas already have 4" deep ruts. A few shaded areas were a bit frozen, but anything in the sun was not. If everyone would just refrain from riding the singletrack in March, the trails would dry out sooner, stay smoother, and require less maintenance overall.]]>

Yeah that's a good plan. Very often, the ground will freeze up and you can get a morning ride in without doing damage, and the afternoon will be sloppy.]]>

swhile- I moved to PA this winter so I'm not terribly familiar with how the soils are in the area. Do you think the trails are rideable in the morning when temps are sub-freezing? Looks like things will be in the twenties tomorrow AM, so I was thinking the ground would be hard enough to avoid damage.]]>
