Greater Dallas Bicyclists has a couple of rides going on. Tuesdays and Thursdays, there's a ride out of Poteet at 5:30. I normally can't get there by then. So far as I know, it's a drop-you-if-we-can ride that goes real leisurely the first couple of miles then at the first downhill, the race is on. (So take a map!) Generally, they're going out East Fork Road down towards Sunnyvale. Depending on where they turn around, that could be from 20 to 45 miles or so. There may be some riders going slower or shorter. There's a 6:00 moderate-pace ride on Tuesdays, but it's had varying attendance- just me on one or two occasions, sometimes nobody, five people last week, so it's hard to say. GDB has other rides around the metroplex that I'm not familiar with.
I ride from my house (near Oates and Duck Creek in south Garland) down to White Rock Lake on occasion, that's about 27 miles round trip.
