yes, of course. And dependant where (how far) you want to go, it might
also be suitable to take the path.
I am wondering how (or if) you would tag the entire path to indicate
that you can, legally, use a bicycle or motorcycle on it, but it isn't
well-suited to such use.
I don't really see the point (maybe in a printed map, but in a digital
one? You could check with your routing engine). What is "the entire
path"? Probably this is more about routes than about tagging a way
> Another reason that you might want to tag a path in such a manner would be if it had stepping-stones across a stream, rather than a bridge.
this should be tagged there. (don't know how. surely not as bridge. ford?)
