I think you'll just have to check the local groups and see. Right now, I'm riding a Saturday no-drop ride that goes slower than that, but it's likely the exception rather than the rule. But ask around.
The no-flats can vary depending on where you ride, what tires you have, and just plain luck. So you may go 6 months with no flats, then have three in a month.
I rode my first century this summer. Sounds like you should be able to do it. What varies is not so much whether you can or can't, but how long it takes you.
