For the last year or more, I've been going on a "non drop" Saturday morning ride that really is more or less non-drop. That seems to be something of a rarity around here, and something to keep in mind for NEW people.
If your turnout is 5 people, no problem just ask around and see who wants to ride how fast and how far and all. If you get 20 people, check if you have enough fast and slow riders to split into two groups.
Usually on our rides, there are two or three regulars (they wear the bike shop jersey, typically) and one of them stays in back, one stays toward the front of the group. The front group will stop every few miles and wait up for the others.
