Stay in your lane!

    I went for a bike ride today - with a mask and distancing from other people - and had a lady yell at me to "stay in your lane!". People often yell weird stuff, and usually I just ignore it. But this one bugged me because at that particular point in time, there were no lanes.
    You can see in the picture below that the lanes kind of end. I was beyond the yellow markers as seen in the photo. The path bends around under the overpass and eventually reconnects with some more bike lanes. But in between, there's just road with no painted or even implied lanes.
    Thinking back on it now, maybe she was just warning me to continue staying in my lane, that's the only thing I can think of that makes sense. Or maybe she was just being a New Yorker and wanted to yell at someone.
