Looking for an Eastern cycling community

Thinking along the lines of what I've 'heard' coming from Boulder/Portland/Seattle... Is there any decent cycling community like that in the northeast/mid Atlantic region...preferably the mid-Atlantic region? I'm looking for some place where you always find guys out riding, on the road, all the time. That's how I hear Boulder/Seattle/Portland always described. Pretty much you can't go through town without seeing plenty of other people out on a bike. I'm looking to do some testing of an idea and I need to find a good cycling community here in the east to be able to do that. Heavy cycling population, not a couple of the same old guys out riding everyday. Don't want a hit and miss scenario...need it to be daily, not once or twice a week bike club ride. On road, not on track(since too many stipulations to have to deal with...yes I thought about T-Town already but too much hassle to deal with around there...it would be a near perfect scenario though since I want to use the other cyclists to test out my own performance for a period of 5-7 days to see if I might be correct and there is one more phase to ultracycling that I might have seen last year while on an 8400 mile bike trip). Anything outside of the big cities, no NYC, Phily, Baltimore, etc have a decent cycling base to it? New England(don't know of anything up this way at all), down through Delmarva Peninsula area, west on out to I-81(Harrisburg area).

I'm in central Jersey. There's Princeton Freewheelers, Jersey Shore Touring Society, and Central Jersey Bicycle Club in our area. Our rides overlap quite a bit and we do support each other's events and charities.
