    the BBQ place is not a "general store" but they have stuff you might want to get -- bananas, energy bars etc. I sometimes like to pick up a Diet Coke and some peanuts or something there.

    Those routes are part of some popular Potomac Pedalers rides that I've done. Very pretty, very farmy. Not tons of shade out in farm country, so be prepared if it's hot and humid.
