Renting a bike / Riding in the Triangle area?

I am going to be in Raleigh this week and will have some free time later in the week I was thinking of renting a bike and going for a ride.


Any recommendations on where to rent / ride. I am thinking of going maybe Thursday or Friday morning if anyone else is up for a casual ride I would love to ride some other people.

I am staying at the Clarion Hotel in Downtown (Clarion State Capital)


But I was hoping to get on some low traffic roads for a casual / scenic ride. (I am still a newbie at road biking so casual is like 15mph or so)

Well, to my dismay All star doesn't rent road bikes and it appear none of the shops around here do so it looks like the ride is a lost cause. Bummer too because from driving around the area it looks like there are some nice country roads to ride on here.
