How fast is too fast on Zwift

There are group rides on Wednesday’s and Fridays at .8-1watt per kilogram.  This equates to 12-15mph on an indoor trainer.  Most published rides have leaders and sweeps; differences from outside riding are (1) leaders have neon beacons so can be seen at a distance (2) many times it doesn’t matter where you are because there is no wind (3) with the public discord link being your cellphone or computer, you can talk to or listen to the entire group no matter what (4) flat tires and mechanicals are not allowed.
 
There are unofficial rides most mornings that are mostly the same people, just smaller groups of 5 or so.  So there is always a daily recovery/easy ride somewhere (just like the Jimmy Buffet song).
 
I highly recommend group rides as a way to make friends; learn more about Zwift; cycling; parts of the world(we meet lot of folks from other states and countries in virtual land
