We do actually have some bike lanes here now. In the new subdivisions, where many of them live, the bike lanes are over 6 foot wide, with new pavement. (I saw a car broke down in one once, and it fit with room to spare.)
They will still ignore the lanes and ride in the road. There are some places where the bike lanes are only around 4 feet wide, but those aren't where these guys usually ride.
They also like to ride in the left lane even if they aren't going to turn left.

It's a deliberate thing with them.
