Our local club use to have a well-attended all-levels road ride on Saturdays. Then a couple guys started volunteering to lead and despite the “no drop” advertisements, managed to keep dropping people.

The rides quickly declined in attendance, and then ended.

I think the problem is that organizers want to say it is a no-drop ride, because otherwise, a lot of folks (even strong riders) are not going to show up. But then the folks leading to ride do not have the patience to follow through. Then people stop believing the no-drop advertising, and stop showing up for any rides.
