Might just be me but an avg. of 19.8 for a church group seems too high. Going from 12 to 4 people might be a good measure. I ride at 18-22 mph but my average is about 16 mph due to traffic.

To build club or any group you need get the number of members up. You might think about having a few ride leaders and having a Slow, Moderate and Higher speed leaders.
