This seems a little iffy.  I mean, footway is obvious, is it designed for
people on foot, and too narrow for oncoming bikes to meet?  Footway.  City
sidewalk?  Footway.  A path through a park?  Probably a path (especially if
it's multiuse), unless it's really narrow, then footway.  Has lanes but
isn't a street?  Cycleway.
