The tag access=destination is supposed to indicate roads where transiting
through is officially discouraged or prohibited, for example with signs such as
"local traffic only".
I would use bicycle=destination only if bicycles were officially discouraged
from using the road as a thoroughfare.
If that's not the case, perhaps you can hint that the road is less preferable
for bicycle routing by using some combination of objective tags like:
parking (on street)
