I think the Problem is to distinguish between a cycle_way_ and a cycle_route_.
Cycleways are special ways exclusively for cyclists, Cycleroutes are are
immaterial - sometimes they use real cycleways, sometimes tracks, residential
or unclassified roads.
The best solution should be to tag the road as e.g. highway=residential,
This way the type of road is correct AND it will be displayed as belonging to
the cycle network, at least on the cycle layer.
