Hmmm. Apparently Thunderbird's 'reply to list' fails when there are 
multiple lists. Sending again:

It implies that the shoulder is an official cycleway, when in reality it 
may be full of debris (or worse: 
http://flbikelaw.org/2012/03/paved-shoulder/ ). Would you use a cycleway 
tag on any sidewalk that one can ride on (here that would be any outside 
city limits), or just those that have been specially designated as such?
