If the roadway you’re riding on has a designated bike lane, you’re required by law to use that bike lane. If the road doesn’t have a designated bike lane, but does have a usable right-hand shoulder, you should use the shoulder. If there is neither a bike lane nor a usable shoulder, then you must ride “near the right-hand curb or edge of the roadway…in such a manner as to prevent undue interference with the flow of traffic, except when preparing for a left turn or when reasonably necessary to avoid conditions that would make it unsafe to continue along near the right-hand curb or edge.” VTL § 1234(a).
