Although cycle lanes are marked in parts along Chapeltown Rd going out of town, it is quite dangerous, especially where there is parking for the shops along the west side of Chapeltown Rd. A particular concern is just after the pedestrian crossing lights past Mexborough St, opposite Costcutters. The vehicle lane narrows for the pedestrian island in the middle of the road, but straight after it are car parking spaces which protrude out into the road, creating a bottleneck so cyclists have to go into the middle of the vehicle lane to get around cars parked there. I've had a few close calls there as impatient vehicles try to push past where there is no room.

It is almost normal during peak hour to have to negotiate cars parked on double yellow lines across the cycle lane.
