Critical mass lives? Bike riders still selfish?

Today, a smaller scale version of this occurred. I have a family, you know, with little kids who need to be driven places, so I have a small van, which is to say, I'm not one of 'them' and maybe there was some even like that today that I did not know about? Anyway, just wondering what kind of etiquette they were expecting, as I was surrounded by several dozen bike riders near Arastradero Park, and being yelled at 'what an unsafe idiot!' I was. Did they really expect me to pull over and let ALL the many bike riders, all go by, even though I could easily drive the fastest and avoid them much easier than they could pedal quickly by them? What I yelled back was, share the road!' I don't think 'share' is these bike riders' message. In fact, I suspect it's one of the least familiar words in their vocabulary...
