    You might ask in their local forum, unless you need a 29er specific trail of course!

    Where are you trade showing? Downtown Raleigh? You can join me during my lunchtime ride which is all onroad, riding my MTB. Usually between 13-19 miles.

    Here's the closest place that I'm aware of that has rentals.

    The trade show is at the State Fair Exposition Center, I can only ride on Wednesday after 4 p.m. Thanks for the link for the rental, I'll look into this.

    You are close to a mix of riding at the Fair Grounds. You can get to Umstead State Park which is all two-track gravel and Lake Crabtree which is beginner singletrack trail.
    4PM sure doesn't leave much time to ride.
