We set out together, but by the time we reached Smallwood Church the Bees were off the front. We saw them leaving Mallows Bay Park as we arrived, and we saw them turning off Friendship Landing Road as we reached it, at which point, Jan skipped the rest stop and joined the Bees. We saw evidence of construction work at the (former) Nanjemoy Store: the familiar ramp up to the front door and the roof over the ramp are gone. We also saw Holly at the corner of Poorhouse and Ripley, most likely doing another solo training ride.
