Interesting question whether the local ordinance is preempted by NC state law. Haven't checked the NC statute, but many state statutes provide that you can't ride more than 2 abreast (and have to be single file if riding 2 apreast would impede traffic.)
If that is in fact the NC statute, you may well have a good argument that the State statute would trump a city wide ban on riding 2 abreast.
I wouldn't rely on that argument, but if you did get ticketed, it would certainly be worth looking into.

OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.
