In the Netherlands so called fietsstraten (bicycle streets) are coming up. Created by municipality's they have no official status, and officially they are roads for cars. Municipality's place a sign over there with "Car's are guest" on it. They really look like cycleway's but it's officially a road. For example look here:,5.509644&sspn=3.246018,7.064209&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Houten,+Utrecht&ll=52.012703,5.178176&spn=0.003229,0.006899&z=17&layer=c&cbll=52.012705,5.178171&panoid=JI5qzp4Ko4zjjJzZ3RJwIA&cbp=12,308.24,,0,14

So on the forum we agreed that the best way for tagging should be highway=residential bicycle=designated. The weird thing is that if you also add the tag cycleway=cyclestreet the combination of the 2 tags makes osmarender render it with the wide of a road but the colour green (that's exactly what you want, especially because the parts where cars are allowed are usually short and the rest is a cycleway. But only the combination of the 2. (for an example look here: But we aren't tagging for the renderer and the tag bicycle=designated has already all the information, so the extra tag shouldn't be needed.

So i would like to see that just the tag bicycle=designated would make a road green, and the extra tag cycleway=cyclestreet is no longer needed.
