oneway:bicycle=no

So who decided that oneway:bicycly=no is suddenly bad tagging? It's been an established way to tag roads that allow cyclists in both directions for many years now. If anything, cycleway=opposite has to die out, since it doesn't allow different categories to drive in both directions, like mopeds. -- Eimai (talk) 23:42, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

I agree: we should rewrite this page. cycleway=opposite is only a possibility to mark a one-way street as being open to cyclists in the opposite direction. Routers will understand it and OpenCycleMap will show a green arrow. But oneway:bicycle=no and its variants for mopeds should be preferred. Additionally, cycleway=opposite_lane or cycleway=opposite_track can be advised to indicate which type of infrastructure is on the ground. In other words, once you have oneway:bicycle=no on a street, cycleway=opposite has no added value and should be removed entirely. Bxl-forever (talk) 10:31, 1 August 2019 (UTC)
Agree. I would prefer to tag cycleway=no or cycleway:both=no to indicate that there is no explicit/marked cycleway infrastructure (random pic from Category:Contra-flow_cycling):
