The legend for OpenCycleMap shows that the blue dashed lines represent "cyclepath":

Does "cyclepath" represent cycleway=lane, highway=cycleway, or bicycle=designated?

On OpenCycleMap the blue dashes can represent:- highway=cycleway or (provided they also include the tag bicycle-yes) highway=footway or highway=path.

OpenCycleMap displays cycleway=lane as blue 'bordering' of the highway containing the cycle lanes.

Some examples here


highway=footway with bicycle=yes

Thank you for your response, but it looks like cyclepath also represents additional key:value pairs that you have not listed, such as cycleway=track (an example of which is here - ). I am interested in getting a complete list of all the tags used in OpenCycleMap.

Yeah, that is quite possible - as in your example. I only listed the key:value pairs that I was familiar with. I didn't want to guess at how other pairs might be rendered in OpenCycleMap. I'm sure other contributors can supply more comprehensive information.
