^^ Pretty much everything Dave said.
The longer you leave it, the longer you'll think to yourself 'gee, that was easier than I thought'. I went for my first group ride only two weeks ago and kinda kicked myself for not trying it sooner, and I'd say back then my fitness level was more or less the same as yours. You'd be surprised at how much a bit of confidence can carry you.
