I have never been on an organized ride, or any other for that matter, and I would love to do one! Can anyone help? firstname.lastname@example.org

I just typed texas bicycle ride into Google and got:
among others. And my very favorite ride (and the fastest century I ever rode http://www.hh100.org)
Texas is quite large. Please be more specific. :) I can reach Atlanta quicker than I can reach El Paso. Texas has counties larger than some states.
Hotter n' Hell or something like that (HHH I think it's called).

Yep, that's the http://www.hh100.org (Hotter'n'Hell hundred)
Thanks. I think Lotek rides this one every year.
A good source of charity rides, primarily North and East Texas is www.bicycle-stuff.com.

www.bicycletexas.com is a great resource.

Are you referring to organized rides (one-day)? Or multi-day tours?
If the former, check out www.bicycle-stuff.com as suggested above. There is no shortage of rides in North Texas during the spring and summer.
If the latter, bummer. You missed a great organized small tour across Texas last year. Bikin' Mike Keel from Plano Cycling and Fitness organized a supported tour from the Gulf to Oklahoma. There were about 15 of us on that one. We did 700 miles in 7 days. It was the best vacation of my life, to date.
This year we might do the Oklahoma Freewheel.

How about the HHH, the biggest ride of them all? It's a fun thing to do at least once in your life.
