Cycleway

To describe infrastructure designed mainly for cyclists. See also: Cycle routes.

Key Value Element Comment Rendering Photo
cycleway lane Way A lane is a route that lies within the roadway Cycle trackinroad.jpg
cycleway opposite Way Used on ways with oneway=yes where it is permitted to cycle in both directions.

Note - such streets are common in Belgium, the Netherlands and Denmark, for example, but are rare in the UK (although they do exist): often, instead, actually the street is two-way as normal for its whole length except for the very short section past the no-entry sign at the end, where cycles are excepted from the no-entry by means of a short lane separated by an island. This is called a "cycle plug". In some places this has been represented as very short oneway Way at the end with an adjacent cycleway, forming a little triangle with the road they join to, or sometimes with a short oneway Way with cycleway=opposite_lane or opposite_track.

cycleway opposite_lane Way Used on ways with oneway=yes that have a cycling lane going the opposite direction of normal traffic flow (a "contraflow" lane) Opposite cycle lane.jpg
cycleway track Way A track is a route that is separate from the road.+oneway=yes if needed. Mapping-Features-Cycleway-track.PNG Cycle nexttoroad.jpg
cycleway opposite_track Way Used on ways with oneway=yes that have a cycling track going the opposite direction of normal traffic flow
cycleway shared Way Cyclists share space with other traffic on this highway.
cycleway share_busway Way There is a bus lane that cyclists are permitted to use. Busandbike.jpg
cycleway shared_lane Way Cyclists share a lane with motor vehicles, but there are markings indicating that they should share the lane with motorists. The road markings are usually there to highlight a cycle route or to remind drivers that you can cycle there. Also used for the on-road shared-lane marking called a "sharrow"[1].
