Radius Pizzeria & Pubs Pizza and Mediterrranean Deli Salads after the Ride as well as Maple View Farms ice cream!

Radius Pizzeria, is located in downtown Hillsborough. They have a bike rack and complimentary bike locks to use if you want to ride to Hillsborough and enjoy their pizza, foccacia or flat breads. They also have a wonderful bar and outdoor dining! Pizzas are baked in a wood-fired brick oven (and they use locally sourced toppings). They are on Churton St. across from the Wooden Nickel & Gulf Rim downtown. (

Mediterranean Deli is on Franklin Street in downtown Chapel Hill. One of my favorites!
