    Bike rental and trail between Durham and Raleigh?

    Hey guys, I'm visiting the RTP area next month and would like to try and get a ride in while I'm there. Can anyone recommend a shop to rent a bike from between Durham and Raleigh? I'll probably only have one day to ride so what would be the best trail to check out?

    I'd suggest going to, your source for mountain biking in Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill and ask the same question there. The best trails are mostly bandit trails, and you'd be well served trying to hook up with a local who can show you around. If you go there, there's actually a pretty recent thread on this same topic, titled "questions from an out of towner" that will contain a lot of the info you're looking for.

    I'll recommend Lake Crabtree. Fairly buffed out with good flow (also has a small jump park, and a pump track). I dunno about shops, but there are plenty to choose from. Good luck.

    You can rent from "the bicycle chain" in Raleigh. Definitely check for trails.

    There are also plenty of bandit trails around, just check Strava and I'm sure you'll find them.
