As Pieren already wrote: this is beyond the scope of the lanes tag.

But as you already asked: if you want to tag the mere presence of a
cycle lane, use cycleway=lane and similar tags. If you want to tag the
exact layout of the lanes use the :lanes extension of the keys
(http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Lanes). In short: if you have a
road with three lanes, on the leftmost bicycles are forbidden, on the
middle they are allowed and the rightmost is a designated lane, you
would tag this is bicycle:lanes=no|yes|designated .
