There seems to be a lot of confusion on the point about why bike lane opponents like myself sometimes ride in bike lanes. I would like to dedicate a thread to clearing it up once and for all.
Yes, bike lane opponents do ride in bike lanes. This may seem contradictory, but remember, we're opposed to the presence of the bike lane stripe, not use of the the space it demarcates.
To understand this, picture in your mind a road with a bike lane with which you are familiar. For sake of discussion, let's refer to the space to the right of the stripe as roadway margin space, and to the space in the outside vehicular traffic lane adjacent to the bike lane as the outside lane primary travel space.
When you're riding in a bike lane, you're in the roadway margin space, and cars in the adjacent lane are passing you using the outside lane primary travel space.
Now, on a road like this, many of us who oppose bike lanes also (not coincidentally) prefer to ride in the outside lane primary travel space where we are more conspicuous, especially when faster same direction traffic is not present. But, we certainly use the roadway margin space, when safe and reasonable to do so, to allow faster traffic to pass us. The thing is, we use that roadway margin space for those good reasons whether or not it happens to be demarcated with a bike lane stripe. The same reasons apply whether or not the roadway margin space happens to be demarcated with a bike lane stripe. That's why we sometimes ride in bike lanes, even though we're opposed to bike lanes.
I hope this makes sense.
