Looks like she was under some pressure, reminds me of a recent go I had against CTS-V coupe that was crossing the double yellow, and at one point was entirely in the other lane.

Not saying you were the cause, but she should be reminded to ride her own pace, and a group ride is not the time to test her abilities (i.e. ride outside her comfort zone).

Yes, she watched the video and saw her mistakes. Don't wanna clean up anybody off the road. Her lines are usually good. Went bad while getting off the bike. Hard to work on multiple things at once.

Everyone makes mistakes, the difference is those that learn from it, and those that don't. Never know if a yellow Porsche, bicyclist, jogger is in that other lane, or for that matter in your lane along the right side.

You should think about establishing "minders" along your route - if you don't already.

Minder: "a person whose job it is to look after someone or something."

Bring some extra people with you that setup ahead of your route. These folks watch and report the conditions so you know whats up long before you get there (police, traffic, road hazards, etc). Usually they are in communication with the group lead, and then the group lead communicates to everyone else behind him.

Might take a little practice to get it right, but if done right, should work pretty good. Not perfect, but better than going in blind wondering if an officer is sitting around the next curve, or a bicyclist, jogger, etc... Kinda like Waze but more real time. I've never used Waze, but if it has audio alerts so you don't have to look at your phone, that might work good too.
