Thorsten's initial suggestion is the agreed-upon method, not PJ's.


Instead of oneway=yes and oneway=-1, use :lanes:forward or :lanes:backward
in the key.

And as many have pointed out, don't touch the main "lanes" tag, which
excludes bike lanes.

So your (basic) tagging would be (for a right-hand driving country):
highway=unclassified (or whatever)

This assumes that bikes aren't legally permitted to use the main
carriageway; otherwise use yes|designated for the bike lanes.
