Talk to the group leader, or see if they have codes. For example my club has a ranking system, and you would look to start at 1LM rides.
1- Flat or with small bumps:
2 - Small rollers
SL - Slow leisurely: below 10 mph. Stops as needed.
L - Leisurely: 10-12 mph. Stops as needed.
LM - Easy moderate: 12-14 mph. Regroups approx. every 30 min.
I have found that everyone in my club is FANTASTIC and kind. However, PLEASE EAT BREAKFAST. My husband (290lbs) ran out the door after 10 hours of sleep with just 140 calories. Yeah, he bonked after about 90 minutes and it was BRUTAL. Even 8/mph was tough for him after that.
