If you're going to whine about it atleast make a good example out of yourself and put words into action.

Hm...we don't have bike lanes here so I don't have to worry about it, but is it actually illegal to ride a bike in the street just b/c there's a bike lane?

it is not illegal, in CA (prob the most strict anyway), to ride a bicycle in the street. Bicycles have the right to full use of right lane and may cross over to make left turns... Bicycles are essentially cars. Pisses me off seeing people ride on the wrong side or on the sidewalk...
V C Section 21202 Operation on Roadway
Operation on Roadway
21202. (a) Any person operating a bicycle upon a roadway at a speed less than the normal speed of traffic moving in the same direction at that time shall ride as close as practicable to the right-hand curb or edge of the roadway except under any of the following situations:
(1) When overtaking and passing another bicycle or vehicle proceeding in the same direction.
(2) When preparing for a left turn at an intersection or into a private road or driveway.
(3) When reasonably necessary to avoid conditions (including, but not limited to, fixed or moving objects, vehicles, bicycles, pedestrians, animals, surface hazards, or substandard width lanes) that make it unsafe to continue along the right-hand curb or edge, subject to the provisions of Section 21656. For purposes of this section, a "substandard width lane" is a lane that is too narrow for a bicycle and a vehicle to travel safely side by side within the lane.
(4) When approaching a place where a right turn is authorized.
(b) Any person operating a bicycle upon a roadway of a highway, which highway carries traffic in one direction only and has two or more marked traffic lanes, may ride as near the left-hand curb or edge of that roadway as practicable.

Yeah it depends around here. If I'm on my Cannondale I ride in the street on the white line, but the other day when I rode my single speed mtb to the trails I stayed off the road since it's so god awful slow on a flat paved surface. I spin out really fast, probably like 12mph. On that ride I was on the sidewalk or next to the sidewalk or just off roading when there wasn't sidewalk. There was really no sense in me being in the street going 10 mph in a 30-35 . On my Cannondale I don't give a shit b/c A) It's way faster, B) I'm usually working out and C) the tires can't handle riding on the sidewalk and jumping curbs quite obviously.
