May do this, have heard good things about it, other DCTriers are planning to go:

http://www.paxvelo.com/

"We have options for riders of various abilities. Choose a traditional full century (100 miles), a 65-mile or 35-mile course. Routes are flat to rolling, with an occasional hill. Cyclists will receive an Under Armour style St. Mary's Century (formerly the Amish Century) tech T-shirt again this year, while supplies last. Rest stops will be well-stocked with traditional items as well as local specialties, and will include Colton's Point. Whether you ride the entire 100 miles or the 35-mile route, count on the hospitality and friendliness cyclists have experienced on each of our previous Amish Hundred rides. At the end of the ride enjoy a shower at College of Southern Maryland and grab a bite at the free picnic.

To register for event click BikeReg.com.

To view the course maps for a particular route, click one of the following links: 38-mile route, 63-mile route and first half of 105-mile route, second half of 105-mile route.

All rides start from the College of Southern MD located in Leonardtown, MD at 22950 Hollywood Road. Registration and packet pickup is from 7:00-9:00 am and century riders are required to start no later then 9:00 am.

Each year, hundreds of cyclists enjoy the quiet rural charm of St. Mary's County. Steeped in history and culture, Southern Maryland is laced with quiet country roads perfect for cycling. Pass farms being worked today, as they were 200 years ago. Take time to stop at local stores, roadside stands, or the farmer's market to sample the produce, baked goods and crafts of the community. Visit the archaeological exhibits at the St. Clement's Island Museum and the experience the history of the early settlers at St. Clement's Island.

A few from DCT were on hand, fairly small numbers overall; sweet potato cream cheese pastries and Grand Marnier raisin bread at rest stops; not as scenic as expected--lotsa highways, total of 1 horse and buggy in "Amish country"; friendly event, easy to hook up with bigger packs or small groups of riders; tasty grill afterwards put on by local tri and bike clubs. And showers provided in the college.
