that's a good thing. If it's a short path between two buildings or
something, I wouldn't call that "especially suitable for cycling".

Again, if vehicles are allowed, it would never be a cycleway. Sorry for the
And to reiterate, I haven't specified what the minimum standard would be
exactly. If you're concerned that there would be "too many" cycleways mapped
in your area, then I think the standard *in your area* should be raised. It
is not important that a single piece of tarmac be mapped the same way in
every country. The important bit is to point out useful information to
cyclists - and labelling every single pedestrian path as a cycleway would
clearly be wrong.
