There is no difference. Please read the wiki:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:cycleway

The only difference is that "cycleway=track" is added to a
highway=secondary/tertiary/unclassified/residential/etc when only one
way is drawn for cars and bikes (most probably because it is surveyed
from a car) and the highway=cycleway attached to a way drawn
separately from the main road (and most probably because it is
surveyed with a bike).
