Babelfish gives me "agricultural way" for this. I assume these are
(old?) farm access roads that have been paved for bicycle use?
I would only tag it as "service" if it's legal for automobiles to use;
otherwise, "highway=cycleway,cycleway=track,foot=yes" seems best to me.

Agreed here. Even aside from engaging additional people, I think a
strong point (and a potential niche too) of OSM is in mapping things
other than motor routes. Motor routes are covered more than adequately
by several competing (commercial) services.
