You will need to get a new tire to fix that bump right away. It will soon pop and leave you stranded.

I have had good luck and pricing with Blue Sky, Jenson, Nashbar and Performance are just as good.

See if you can find some other Mountain bike riders and ask them about trails. Another way is to visit a local bike shop and ask them, they might also have flyers.

Raleigh is a solid name in bikes. If it feels comfortable to you, ride it for all its worth.
