Oops, I forgot to attach the pictures. Try again :-) The first picture  
is typical of a city street, where you'll often see cars parked on the  
street along the cycleway. The second picture is a cycleway along a  
larger road, typically leading into a city. (The sidewalk is on the  
far side of the strip of grass.)

We use this in several cases, however, we have so many cycleways here,  
that in cities it becomes unmanagable to use separate ways. I am  
willing to explain this in depth, but I don't want to introduce that  
discussion in this thread.

It is the feeling of the danish OSM community that we need to be able  
to tag cycleways that are part of the road construct, separated with a  
curbstone like seen in the two pictures below.

Regarding the "kerb" vs. "curb" question, the dictionary tells me that  
"kerb" is british english, whereas "curb" is international english. I  
think we want to stick with international english, right?
