highway=cycleway + cycleway=no is definitely a nonstarter.
cycleway=no means that there is no bicycle facility. highway=cycleway
means that it's built only for, or primarily for, cycling. In the US, this
would effectively be the same as a multiuse path, but with marked lanes
and/or signage, and may include a provision for pedestrians such as
sidewalks, like this one in Tulsa
A common arrangement would be to be open to pedestrian traffic, but provide
no facility for walking, such as this one in Jenks, Oklahoma
More elaborate arrangements would be like this one in Helmrich Park
where the sidewalk is fully separated (visible on left) from the sidewalk
(foreground). The former only allows pedestrians, the latter allows
cyclists and skaters.
