I would much rather ride on an unmarked road and take the lane when necessary.

The only thing you can do is to move into the car lane. Just make sure you're taking the lane so you won't be squeezed with close passes. Impatient drivers behind you will just have to wait until you find a clear spot in the bike lane in which to return.

Recently, when I do see cars in the bike lane, I also see their occupants finish doing what they do to get out of the lane before I get there.
