Sounds like you are in the situation we all experienced prior to our first club rides. I averaged around 15mph on my own and was absolutely amazed to average 16.7 for 35miles on my first club ride. The drafting increased my speed that much - you will just have to get out there like others said and see what you feel comfortable at. If you have not expierenced the close riding conditions, there will be an adjustment period there also. Because I had ridden by myself a good bit before starting to club ride, I felt the adjustment to being in front and pulling was the easiest part for me.
