In Germany we got a term calles "bicycle-street". It's designated for 
bicycles ans without exceptions only bicycles are allowed to use. 
Normally there are exceptions e.g. motor_vehicle=destination, but 
motor_vehicle=yes is also possible.

highway=path + bicycle=designated + motor_vehicle=yes

is not a so unworldly situation out there.
