It took about 4 hours to calm down.

Second off, ouch!

I quit riding with this group years ago. As a core it was a really good group with some super talented and strong riders, which I am not and was not fit enough to ride with. I lead the C group for a while and it was awesome aside from newbie mistakes. That group dwindled and moved up, I joined them in the B group and the shenanigans, lack of respect, and CAT 6 racing going on totally turned me off to riding with them as a whole. Overall, my experience with group riding has been to stop. Cycling on your own, or with friends whom presumably care about you, it is dangerous enough.
