Hmm... I usually ride by myself, with my boyfriend, or with a couple of our friends. Haven't joined any bike clubs yet, but I know that there are a few around. There are several in the greater Cleveland area.
You appear to be south of Cleveland. (BTW, you may want to fill in the 'location' portion of your Profile, at least -- we have folks from all over the globe here and it's nice to see where a viewpoint is coming from.)
Try the Medina County Bike Club
or the Akron Bicycle Club
Organized rides are done by folks of all abilities -- fast or slow; road bike, mountain bike, hybrid, recumbent... Typically, they don't involve a mass-start and you ride at your own pace. Listings for Ohio rides are on the Ohio Bicycle Events Calendar
Good luck & happy riding! BTW, what sort of speed do you usually average? I'm usually around 15-17 mph, depending on terrain.

...what's your goal?
