Don't limit the age group too high. It would be better to state a certain ability level, and then you will finish up with a group that can ride together. I know with our group, we start off with a 30 year old, that only rides occasionally due to work commitments, and finish with me at 58. In the middle there is a fit rider, and I must admit that if he is not on the ride, then I enjoy it more. Then there is another fit rider, very fit rider, that everyone enjoys riding with. He does disappear into the distance, but is also prepared to drop back to the slow rider and help them up the hill. Then there are the occasional newcomer to the sport-- 20 year olds, that learn a lot with us before moving onto other things like career and Girlfriends.
