It is very cool to hook up in a tight riding group when it happens, but I have a blast no matter what.
As far as mileage, it sounds like you guys do some pretty fast rides. In the kind of terrain I like to ride (rocky single track), 62 miles (100km) is a pretty good day.

Luckily most my riding buds are all about the same ability. I agree with you guys about the size of groups - 6 or more generally means a lot of stop and go. Snowmobiling is even worse. 4 to 6 guys of equal ability is a great days fun on the snow or in the dirt.

My mates are all pretty fast and I tend to be in the middle, but another tip is if you need to wieght for an hour you probably should have stopped earlier. What happens if they have decided to practice parking that DT175 in a tree? You wait an hour, then look for an hour - even if they are not injured you miss out on heaps of km's by backtracking and rooting around.
It's all a balance.

One of my mates would always be lingering behind but now after a few months he pi$$es on all of us
For serious hard training for races two or three riders no more
for fun rides 4 -6
anymore than that and all you do is spend more time waiting than riding
I also wont ride with a freind if he tells me he has an XT500 or Dt125 or any old junker that will keep us all up
