so i had this great idea today...in the highly likely event that i don't get a job this summer, i figured i'd flex my volunteer muscles and try to get together some group rides for my church. now, the church is in a rural area, so the roads are one mile apart...once around the "block" is 4 miles, but the whole area is relatively flat. seen as how i'm away at school now, i'd have to start organizing this whole thing in may or so, for the summer...are there any good guides or tips for arranging beginner group rides like this? i'm thinking, things like riding the whole route myself to see just how rideable it is for beginners, possibly finding someone to print some jerseys, and of course, advertising the thing are good areas to start...but, what else can i do?
