Use cycleway=opposite for situations where cyclists are permitted to travel in both directions on a road which is one-way for normal traffic, in situations where there is no dedicated contra-flow lane marked for cyclists.
Note that for routing purposes using just oneway:bicycle=no is enough, this tag may be used to explicitly describe cycling infrastructure and some may prefer to not spend time on adding it. For example without this tag it is not clear that somebody surveyed location and confirmed that there is no separate contraflow lane.
Note about contraflow lane
Note that roads oneway for most vehicles and not oneway for bicycles, with separate line for cyclists would be tagged with cycleway=opposite_lane (or
cycleway:left=opposite_lane/cycleway:right=opposite_lane cycleway:left=lane/cycleway:right=lane) rather than cycleway=opposite.
