That's debatable (as well as, er, very_horrible).
Personally I believe the easiest and most flexible thing is just to extend
the access tags:
so you'd get
foot=yes (permitted, no problem)
bicycle:racer=unsuitable (permitted but not practical)
bicycle:hybrid=difficult (permitted but challenging)
bicycle:mtb=yes (permitted, no problem)
It follows the time-honoured OSM principle of "tag as much as you know/can
be bothered to do; crowdsourcing will make the data richer over time".
But I really can't be faffed with explaining this to a bunch of droids on
the wiki who may never have seen a bridleway in their lives but won't let
that stop them voting.
