There are very few dedicated cycleways. Most other cycleways are either
completely mixed with pedestrian ways (e. g. in Prague) or one half of
the way is pedestrian and the other is cycleway (e. g. Pardubice).
Well, it's a question, whether such ways should be tagged as
highway=cycleway;foot=yes (as proposes wiki)
change the default and use highway=cycleway
Changing the default is ugly as invalidates existing tags.
default-access tables on the wiki is not a good idea, as it would
complicate routing software, which has to assign country to each
cycleway without foot tag.
In Czech Republic there are also so called "cycle traces"
("cyklotrasy"). They are a standard (e. g. tertiary) roads dedicated to
motorcars with no bike lane, but with "cycle way" traffic sign:
