A cycle lane is bicycle infrastructure that is an inherent part of the road, but set aside for the exclusive use of bicycles, whilst being separated only by paint or other markings, and without a physical separation from vehicles. Where a physical separation exists either use the cycleway=track tag or create a separate way as highway=cycleway.
How to map
If there is only one cycle lane add:
- cycle lane only right (direction of the ways of OSM)
- cycle lane only left
- A slippy map version is available online. OpenStreetMap detailed overlays generates a road overlay with lanes, cycleways (cycleway=lane), parking, and sidewalks rendered at higher zooms (16+).
