Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

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=cycleway http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/211428231#map=17/-37.78792/175.30555&layers=C

highway=footway with bicycle=yes http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/282437711

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 - http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/160390336 ). 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.
