I had a fun little bonk after one of the sprints, so I was off the back when the festivities took place. From what I understand it sounded like a simple "car back" would have kept new friends from being made.

By the time I pulled up to Roberts (about 5 minutes back), our group was well on their way to Bunker Hill and the other group appeared to be back on track to having a good time enjoying themselves on the bike.

Several of us were wondering about Bunker Hill's grades. I found this on Stanford Cycling:

Bunker Hill Drive (9%) This hill starts at Polhemus Road along Crystal Springs appendix loop west of San Mateo. It starts out rather gently, with plenty of flatteners. Most of the serious climbing is in the last few hundred meters, where it steadily rises at a 14-16% grade. Since overall climbing distance is 0.55 mi, the average grade is not so bad. Beyond the crest, it has a short drop, crosses over 280, and meets with Skyline Blvd. In the reverse direction it could be used to shorten the Crystal Springs loop, but make sure your brakes are in good shape.

We squeezed by on the left as they were riding 3-wide on Mountain Home. One of their riders took offense, jumped up to our group, and proceeded to weave back and forth across the yellow line while chewing one of us out. I don't know if there was proper warning in that incident or not, but one of their riders refused to get to the right later on when I said, "on your left," and even tried to accelerate to keep me from passing.

Whoa. WHAT? Who were these people?
