cycleway lane Way A exclusive lane for bicycles, normally marked with a solid line from the other road. Radweg-2013-oberursel-849.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 (full) lane with motorists (like in the picture, sometimes without the arrows). 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].

cycleway UNKNOWN? Way suggested lane Cyclists may use this small (not full) lane. Motorvehicles are also allowed to use this lane, if it is needed (i.e. the road is too narrow for oncoming traffic). The lane is normally marked with a dashed line. Schutzstreifen Schlachthof Karlsruhe.jpgCycle trackinroad.jpg
