In these examples the cycleway doesn't actually disappear but it's admittedly hard to see at that zoom. (It is in any case redrawn in a thinner version above roads etc to ensure it is visible.)
I'm reluctant to attempt to give it an extra highlight as the various emphasis lines for the routes are carefully stacked to work with multiple types of route and cannot be readily changed.

Thank you John for the explanation. This should only be highlighted for: highway=cycleway But I understand that it may not suit everyone. Therefore, I suggest that the highlighting be optional and only in the cycling menu.

@Žajdlík Josef
I will prepare a test version tonight with cycleway highlighting enabled at the same time as colour-coded cycle routes, treating cycleways as local cycle routes, for cycling style
I think this is my preferred solution.
Test version: https://voluntary.nichesite.org/beta.html
Although I understand your request, I very much do not want to add another option to the menu - Voluntary theme is intended to offer only limited options for simplicity.
Please look tomorrow and tell me what you think.

Hi John, Highlighting is better. The problem, however, is that it is still not possible to simply distinguish special Cycleway from the cycling route. In the Czech Republic (and other countries) it is mandatory to use Cycleway by law. But if the cyclist overlooks the raid, it is not usually possible to drive it. Therefore, I would need to distinguish special cycleway. I attach the SCR raid on Cycleway from Nivnice along the 490 road. On the small phone screen, Cycleway is hard to see.

Hmm. That was something I had not understood. Could you give me a link to the osm data of this cycleway so I can be sure of which tag makes it a special cycleway and needs highlighting. And the location, too, please.
Would highlighting in a different colour help?Does this highlighting need a high priority so that other cycling route colours don't show?

This is Highway = Cycleway. I attach SCR and link https://www.openstreetmap.org/edit#map=15/48.9854/17.6441 The address is: Nivnice, Uherské Hradiště district, Zlín Region, Central Moravia, 687 51, Czech Republic.
It would be ideal if special cycleways went to display on cycle routes. The color is usually used purple, see. Theme Lomap. Special cycleways always have a solid surface, concrete or asphalt. Therefore, they do not have to display the surface type and the line can be continuous.

So, just highway=cycleway, nothing else to make it special?
The surface is not necessarily solid in other countries, so that can't be assumed.
If I add an emphasis like for cycle routes but in a different colour (purple is used for MTB), we have to decide which takes priority, cycle route or cycleway?

Cycleway takes precedence because it is created specifically for cyclists. And in some countries it must be used. It could have the same color as Cycleroute, but it should be more significant.

Some countries have cycle highways or cycle superhighways with limited access junctions etc which will be in the next version of OAM maps. I think those should take precedence over cycleways, but otherwise OK.

I've uploaded a new beta with an option in the Cycling style to independently switch on emphasis for cycleways.
Translations are not yet done.

Hi John, the highlighting of Cycleway is great. Personally, I would probably unify a shade with map themes of Locusthemes and Paws, but it is not necessary. This is just because of the unification of the appearance of Cycleway in different topics.

I have found that part of Cycleway is not displaying. It may be because it is a trail combined for cyclists and pedestrians. For example here: https://www.openstreetmap.org/edit#map=16/49.2290/17.4897 I can't syntax programming language, but I would like something like that: Higway = Cycleway*

That cycleway isn't highlighted in the Locus internal theme either. I note that it was last edited 14 days ago and it may be that the map hasn't caught up yet. OAM maps typically are updated monthly.
In Voluntary, the test is simply for highway=cycleway and shared use will not affect it, so I can see no other reason why it's not showing.
Please let me know of any other issues.

Hello John
thanks for the beta
Question, why are the bike paths displayed differently depending on the used map?
