that might fit for the NL, but in Germany the rules are different and more
vague: you must use the cycleway if it runs along a road and is usable and
is going where you are going and you are not encumbering other cyclists
(i.e. big trailer). This is different from a bicycle=no on the road, there
is no explicit minwidth but special conditions (like ice and snow or litter
on the cycleway) might also allow you to use the road.
