A loop down Bicknell and back on Pisgah Marbury, then Poorhouse to Annapolis Woods and Firetower to a rest stop at Scott's Store -- where Alexa and I saw Karen and Tom, Karen for the last time; then 6 to a climb up Durham Church and Ironsides to 6 (where we saw Tom for the last time, after his solo side trip down to Friendship Farm Park in search of extra miles) to Hancock Run and Adams Willett and a second rest stop at the Nanjemoy Store. Jacksontown and 6 brought us to Mason Springs back to Pisgah Park.
Mishaps and mechanicals: none
An altogether splendid day. A great ride in excellent company, a side trip to T&J's for the potluck, plenty of time to change, get to the church at Broad Creek, discover that the location had been changed and still get over to the new location before the annual meeting actually began. It's hard to beat that.
