Any Sunday at Michael's Bar and Grill you will find from 10 to 100 bikes, all brands. The fun starts around 9:30 and continues sometimes until noon. Usually a ride or two will organize and you may find yourself gone until dusk. If you're in the area of central North Carolina it's a must.
You'll find Michael's in Cole Park Plaza, on Hwy 15-501, 4 miles South of Chapel Hill and 11 miles North of Pittsboro. Phone 919-942-6904.
|The food is good and the wait people friendly. We keep trying to get
them to improve the coffee - it's plentiful but...
We like to eat outside on the deck - allows you to keep an eye out for each new bike . There is seating inside for the less hardy.
|A variety of tires to kick and lies to hear.||
Come on out some Sunday and you might meet a few of the characters listed below.
