Where should I ride if there is no shoulder or bike lane and the travel lane is too narrow to share?

Many streets in Hoboken, especially many of the numbered streets, are very narrow and may not provide enough space for a motor vehicle to safely pass a bicycle. On these narrower lanes, a bicyclist might actually “take the lane”, i.e., position themselves at or near the center of the lane. In this way, motorists will see you and not be invited to unsafely squeeze by in the same lane.
