Indeed, I live in Cambridge...

A good example is Trumpington Road, where OSM has "Trumpington 
Cycleway" as a separate way parallel to the road.  It is tagged just 
highway=cycleway, name="Trumpington Cycleway".  There is something 
similar on Grange Road.  "Barton Cycleway" has a more comlex set of 
tags, but I don't see any obvious filter criteria to distinguish these 
from "cross country" cycle paths.

Thanks,  Phil.
