The Beez sometimes like to ride in a group or sometimes not. Tom Bee led out almost to catch the A's at the Nanjemoy Community Center. He declined a field promotion to an A and rode back at his happy pace. Larry Bee left the rest stop with Jim H in search of the perfect coffee. None was found at the newly remodeled Nanjemoy Store, but they reported that it would be a promising rest stop. Tasha Bee kept a steady pace in spite of being off the bike for three weeks. MayBee Beez Karen and James from the CC group rode with us much of the way. MayBee field promotions are in order for them!
Thanks to Ron for the route and the fine weather, and to everyone who came out.
