Did you enable "lock on road" in your device?
The problem sounds like your GPS signal (or the road) is off by some meters. 
Your Garmin device looks for the nearest way, and it finds the cycleway.
So it assumes you are driving on the cycleway. If there is no cycleway, it
will use the road, because there is nothing more in the near.
