i'm considering this from a "what's permitted" view but from "is this designed
for bicycles" view.
its not to do with every way on which bicycles are permitted being a cycleway
- my bicycle is permitted lots of places but they certainly weren't designed
for cycling - kerbs to jump up and down, tight corners, steps
but what i need to know is "is this way a good place to take a bike" or "is
this way a better route for a bike"

so? will it alter the licence in a better way?
