Raleigh cycling and brewpubs

Hey all,
I am looking for some ride advice in the Raleigh area. I plan to ride the Neuse River trail and parts the Raleigh Greenway. The 3rd day is a crap shoot, open for suggestions. Does anyone have some advice on either of the rides or suggestion for the 3rd unknown ride? I hope to end the rides near brewpubs

Appreciate any input

Here's a nice route to hit different breweries: https://bikeraleighgreenways.com/unc...ies-bike-tour/ Wander around this guy's site and you'll find many more greenway rides.

If you're into gravel, Umstead State Park has a nice ~16mi multi-use trail system you can ride - highly recommend it! Many people incorporate Umstead with greenways/breweries, Google will help with more details.

The American Tobacco Trail is a "nice" trail - very flat, rather straight. But there are greenways which connect to it which allow you to ride into adjoining towns (Cary, Morrisville; the Southpoint area). The north end of ATT is in downtown Durham, with it's great food and beer scene.

I'd encourage you to check out Oak City Cycling on the north side of downtown. The entire crew there is awesome, super-helpful, and they have regular rides.

Thanks, just what I needed. I saw it before my trip but couldn't log on and thank you. I used some of your suggestions. I rode the entire Greenway (Neuse, Crabtree Creek around Raleigh as well as the map you posted including Walnut Creek trail and lower Neuse River. Cruised the NC State campus. I also rode the Tobacco trail as my legs were spent and it was the flattest trail.
Breweries included : Burial. New Athem, Epic and Crank Arm.
Great town, great riding and great brews!

THANKS!
