i live in apopka, i just moved from the universal studios area. i am pretty much just starting out too, as far as road bikes go.
Network to find someone compatable with. Probably far more opportunity with the variety of rides than the handful on this forum.
Florida Freewheelers - probably the broadest range of riding styles, concentrate on A/B rides if in shape, or slower rides to build up, or like me - take off with the A/B kowing will be dropped in 10 miles, leisurely ride as C's catch up. http://www.floridafreewheelers.com/index.php
On the west side, http://www.windermereroadies.com/ Also on their web site see links to area clubs and race teams.
On the east side, the Lakemont ride(s) sponsored by Loco-Motion LBS. http://locomotionbikes.com/
Another LBS is http://www.glorycycles.com/ Uncertain about sponsored club type rides, but the owner (and employees) has a racing background and sponsor 3 teams.
That should be a good start.

yea tizeye, ive recently checked all of those sites already, windermere roadies looks like a great bunch of people. they have some great road maps on there site...ill probably just show up at one of there events...
Also, With your living in Apopka, check out some of the Mt Dora and Clermont rides on the Freewheeler site. Nice rolling hills through the countryside. I am over on the east side near UCF where it is flat.
