Don't know about groups, but you can ride down emerald isle (bike lane the whole way) or drive to Swansboro. From there you can do the swansboro centennial loop, about 25 miles. Very nice, scenic, low traffic, good variety of terrain (considering where you are located). Traffic the along NC24 leg is an issue, but it's only a few miles and drivers have plenty of room to pass you. The bike store in cedar point just before swansboro has info on the loop, so does google.
Also, I've never done it, but I believe hwy. 70 east of beaufort going towards the cedar island ferry is very lightly traveled. It's probably 50-60 miles round trip however.
