I am with Martin on this and I think that is a perfect example of how 
not to map it.

 From the cycleway wikipage:
> A cycle lane is an inherent part of the road itself.

So setting anything globally for the road means it is also implied for 
the cyclelane. If you set bicycle=no for a road that has cycleway=lane 
and you want to allow bicycles on that lane, you should add 
cycleway:bicycle=yes to it.

Analogous to oneway=no and oneway:bicycle=yes if bicycles are allowed
