Thanks for the replies.
I'm in it for the health and the fun, don't want to obsess on numbers however I think since I am just starting the average speed is a fair gauge of improvement. I use Strave to track my commute occasionally to see how I am doing.
I find that a fast cadence is more comfortable than a slower one in a higher gear so I pick the gear that keeps me spinning at that comfortable pace and I don't stop peddling unless I have to, intersections and such.
Since it is my commute ride that I am tracking the variables are the same I don't bother with Strava on my other rides.

And your right I do roll faster on the club rides but I haven't tracked one to prove it.
