Why not? Unless your recommendations are very different from what "normal"
people would expect, why not tag the usable streets with bicycle=usable or
something like that? OSM is not attempting to be "official" in any sense
of the word, is it? I for one think tagging which streets are suitable for
bikes (even if there is no special bicycle lane or track) would be a
useful addition to OSM.
