Check out the OAS Lite ride. It's fast but not as fast as the 8:00 group. We do paceline quite a bit when we have the right folks participating. Our average last Saturday was 19.2 MPH for 51 miles. I've ridden with the 8:00 gang as well as the OAS group. I seem to keep coming back to the OAS Lite ride though. I don't think we have ever left anyone out in the middle of nowhere to find their way back. As Doggus stated, the best pacelines are done in the OAS group but you must be able to sustain speeds of 25MPH+ for long periods at a time. They take off pretty tamed out of the parking lot but once you hit the open roads you BETTER be ready.

Come try to the OAS Lite ride. I won't be there this weekend but I should be there next weekend. I'm easy to spot (Check out the You And Your Ride thread)
