Warming up and stretching after the ride will help alot. The advice about staying hydrated is also excelent. You might also want to have yourself properly fitted at your LBS (I'm assuming that you haven't.) When I first started riding I was not sitting on my bike right and found that this caused me to strain out my calfs alot, a simple adjustment and it went away. You'll also notice that as you develop your spin most of this will be eliminated as a smooth and consistent cadence really helps with the longevity of those legs...

Oh and seeing that you're relatively new to road riding don't pay so much attention to speed, rather work on your cadence, breathing and rhythm...in other words tune the engine then open it up.
