Check out pwtc.com - "Portland Wheelmen Touring Club" - especially the ride schedule link. Both groups you saw were Portland Wheelmen group rides: a "Reach the Beach" training ride of 75 miles from Champoeg; and a 45-miler from Charbonneau.
There's a 43-miler planned from Charbonneau this Saturday, an 85-miler on the 24th from Champoeg, the Monster Cookie Metric on the 25th from Salem to Champoeg (salembicycleclub.org), and a century the first Sat. of June out of Canby. They have a few rides out of Newberg as well - though it seems most of their rides are in the NE Portland/Vancouver area.
I wasn't out there this past Saturday, but I might do the Charbonneau ride this coming Saturday. Don't worry (at least for now) that you are not a member - just come check it out.
