Thanks Nathan for the examples.

Paul, ORS 814.420 says "a person commits the offense of failure to use a bicycle
lane or path if the person operates a bicycle on any portion of a roadway that 
is not a bicycle lane or bicycle path when a bicycle lane or bicycle path is 
adjacent to or near the roadway" and then gives several exceptions.

If you are arguing that bicycle=destination applies to this portion of Burnside 
Street as a result of ORS 814.420, then where is the adjacent bicycle lane or 
bicycle path? Burnside Street is not tagged cycleway=track or cycleway=lane, and 

neither is there any way tagged highway=cycleway next to it.

And to pre-empt your answer: the parallel streets (Southwest Oak, Northwest 
Couch) do not count. ORS 814.420 cannot be read as requiring cyclists to use 
parallel streets since they are in no way "adjacent to or near the roadway" of 
the street in question.
