Oregon's got some badly designed cycleways, since in theory anything human
powered up to 3 feet wide can legally traverse unless otherwise signed, but
there are bollards and bike barriers that are closer spaced than this and
present a real hazard (particularly underwidth bicycle barriers, since
these tend to have other spacing problems that make larger standard
bicycles and some increasingly common varieties (particularly larger ones
like goods bikes

bikes with extended wheelbases <http://bakfiets.nl/eng/>, or pretty
much anything
pulling trailers

that are otherwise perfectly legal, difficult to completely impossible to
navigate).  In other words:  A potential tag combination might be
maxwidth=3', maxwidth:physical=2'3"...
