That raised footpath (you can view it on Google Streetview) doesn't look wide enough to be really comfortable to cycle on. I've cycled on narrow raised footpaths of other lengthy tunnels before where you have little margin between bumping into the wall with a shoulder on one side and dropping down a high curb in front of a truck on the other. It's not a pleasant idea.Has a raised foot path that looked quite rideable, but would not be much fun due to traffic. I took note whilst driving through last year since their were a few cyclists on the road and not the path. Didn't look like fun.
That's why I always use Rt53 / Yamabushi toge for crossing the mountains around there. It may be more climbing, but it's a much more pleasant experience.
