Many public bridleways have many more walkers and cyclists using it than 
actual horse-riders. But are still mapped as bridleways.

Map it as a cycleway, unless it is a public bridleway, in which case map 
it as bridleway. You are mapping the status, not the actual usage.

My feeling is that a highway should be mapped at the highest level of 
permitted usage. The assumption is that pedestrians can go almost 
anywhere anyway. Motorways excepted.

Are there any public cycleways from which pedestrians are actually banned?
