Looks like Barbur, uphill. Been a long time since I rode it. Never a pleasant experience on a bike. I would have done just as seth did. On the other hand, if I was feeling particularly alert and energetic, I might have bothered to transition around the bus by the lanes to the left as simple nature commented about. But as seth, said, on Barbur, doing that is probably just going to result in being passed by the bus shortly thereafter.
Barbur isn't pleasant traveling in a car either. I suppose that's a small amount of justice.
There's a tougher climb involved, but I'd probably be inclined to take Corbett and some side streets at the top to come out just east of the Burlingame Fred Meyer. Much nicer, quieter ride. Almost no hyper-tensioned road users to deal with.
