Since "leaning rail" is a non-specific term that could also refer to other forms of street furniture (e.g. furniture in public transport waiting areas), but these types of objects here are clearly only intended for cyclists, we prefer the value prefixed with "cyclist"

-1 for 'amenity'. Everything is an amenity for some group of people.

Many things can be used by bicyclists to lean on, traffic light poles, 
power poles, pedestrian barriers etc. Should they be mapped too?

Not something I would map nor render.
