Cycle paths

In the UK, almost all cycleways permit pedestrian usage. You therefore do not need to add a foot=* access tag unless pedestrian use is expressly forbidden.

Cycle only path
highway=??; cycleway=track; foot=no highway=cycleway; foot=no

Please note: when using highway=cycleway, omitting the surface=* tag implies it is paved and when using highway=path, omitting the surface=* tag implies it is unpaved.
