You need to handle the "last turn" problem, where bikes are allowed in
order to make a road connection.

Thus the road tag should not be "no", but "use_sidepath" or another new
generic tag that indicates a mode
is allowed limited use.    The same situation exists for left turns in
streetcar right of way,  certain truck rules,
and some carpool lanes that allow non-carpools to merge through.
