The eastern shore of Maryland and Va is rideable most of the year. Just an hour or so drive from Annapolis.
Locally you have a bike path that goes toward BWA, as long as it isn't icy, dress warm and ride. You can also walk 5 miles or more at a brisk pace That gives you just as much of a cardiovascular workout as 2 hours of riding.
By mid March avg temps should be well into the 50's that still gives you 6 weeks to prepare
Another area within 3 hours of you that I like to ride in the winter is southern eastern Virginia between Petersburg and Suffolk, lots of great rural riding. You can base yourself in a motel in Williamsburg , ride to the Jamestown/Scotland ferry, cross over and ride either towards Smithfield, Claremont or towards Franklin. You could also make it an overnighter to Franklin.( there is a Days Inn and Super 8) Very little traffic in that area except for US 460 and US 58. I am probably going there myself the week of February 19th
