Trips in the Mid-Atlantic States

I am anxious to learn about and join organized bike trips that might be held this Spring in the Middle Atlantic States -- PA, VA, DE, MD. What would be the fastest way to learn of such trips?

The URL you gave is working, but few if any of the state URLs on that page are valid.

Pittsburgh to DC on the GAP / C&O. You don't need no steenkin' SAG wagon! Very doable with ample camping and hotel/B&B opportunities all along the route.

Is that right? I just went there and tried most of the links on the page. I found about 5 of the states listed pointed to bad pages. The rest went to live page. How many did you actually click on?

Four at random, then I gave up.
