</blockquote><div><br><br>Ah, well, I've never actually come across a track/road/lane whatever you want to call it that was *exclusively* for cyclists. That's not to say that they don't exist, just that they're obviously not common where I live. I don't interpret highway=cycleway to mean "exclusively for bikes"... I interpret it to mean "signed, suggested, and good for bikes". Given the number of other cycleways that are around the place that I know for a fact are shared paths, I think that that's a pretty common interpretation too.
