One thing that will go wrong for sure is to transform a group ride into a race.
Sooner or later some one is going to get hurt. That is a fact!!
How to avoid this to happen?
You got to have rules and make every member of the group respect them, other wise will be kicked out of the group.
Is that simple.
My two cents!!!

I'd say there's always a potential problem with communication. I've personally never used electronic comms while riding, but have been on rides where they are used effectively. The other option is non-verbal comms. I've been confused by some hand signals in the past, but somehow seem to have avoided major mishaps. I think that having a ride leader helps most. I just follow the guy in front of me.

One group I do rides with has everybody ride the same route but everybody does it at their own pace. The fast guys ride with the fast guys, semi-fast and so on. We all stop for lunch plus everybody stops for gas, bathroom etc.. You can hang with the racers for a bit and drop out whenever. It works good for us.
