I once rode my Worksman reverse tricycle on a 16-mile charity ride, took 2 hours and PASSED people while doing it. So yes, there are people riding slower out there. It may vary by the ride, and one where the shortest route is 35 miles may not attract the kids-on-little-bikes like a shorter route does.

Take a look at the route. Do the longer routes use the same rest stops that the shorter route does? If so, then they should all be open for you with no problem.

It helps to know the general geography- in particular, if you're riding the flattest roads around, and this route does the hilliest roads around, beware.
