Welcome, and congrats on the new wheels.
Depending on how long you have been riding I recommend staying away from group rides for a few months. As much fun as it is to ride with others, its very easy for you to start riding over your head trying to keep up. Practice by yourself for a little bit then ride with a friend whos can ride a nice comfortable pace, to where you dont feel pressured.

Noob rides tend to turn into moderate very fast.

That's why we have guidelines to define a "noob" ride.
