Is it legal to ride a bike between traffic lanes in Michigan?

No. In Michigan, the Michigan Vehicle Code no longer prohibits “passing between lanes of traffic,” but it also does not provide for cyclists passing on the right of other vehicles. The purpose of this law is to protect the safety of the bicyclist as well as Michigan drivers, preventing Michigan car-bicycle accidents.
